Speaking at the flag-off ceremony of the twin event, the NDE Director General, Mallam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo, said the training further demonstrates the genuine desire of NDE to root out poverty and joblessness through skill acquisition schemes that would ultimately lead to generation of employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed youths in the country.
