The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) has cautioned the 100 trainees selected for its special domiciled skills acquisition training in vocational and technical skills to adhere strictly to laid down rules and regulation or be shown the way out of camp.
Coordinator of the organisation in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mr. Romiluyi Oludare Newton gave this advice while flagging off its six-month training in selected trades at the new NDE Model Multipurpose Skills Acquisition Centre located at Kuduru, in Bwari area council.
He said the selected beneficiaries should count themselves lucky, for emerging successful out of the thousands that applied for the scheme from all over the FCT.
In a statement issued at the weekend, by Head of Information and Public Relations, Abdulrahman Mohammed, the coordinator reminded them that the NDE is gradually shifting from training its participants informally through individual master trainers to a more formal school setting which is obtainable at the new model skills centre.
Also, the coordinator revealed that the new NDE Model Skills Acquisition Centre occupies 3 hectares of prime land in Kuduru, Bwari and comprised of completed and furnished administrative block, ICT centre classrooms, equipped workshops, 150 bed male and female hostels, kitchen and dining hall, a 3,000 gallon water tank and a 30 KVA standby generator in case of public power failure.
