The Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, has earmarked 6,300 jobs for

youths in the Niger Delta. Beneficiaries of the scheme that will include

unemployed youths, university undergraduates as well as persons in

employment who desire to earn more cash, will be trained by online

marketing giant, KONGA.COM.
Ag. Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Ibim Semenitari, said

the entrepreneurship training will create jobs and offer financial

stability to families. Semenitari remarked that the partnership between

NDDC and KONGA.COM is one of the numerous ways the Commission under her,

is reducing unemployment in the Niger Delta region and creating new

entrepreneurs.
According to Semenitari, beneficiaries of the job creation, to be drawn

from the 9 mandate states of the Commission, will not only become

prospective big income earners but have prospects to establish similar

retail chains like KONGA.COM.
“Our target for those 6,300 youths goes beyond giving them the opportunity

to acquire knowledge in online retail business which is creating billions

of Naira patronage in Nigeria and overseas, they also stand to earn for

themselves sustainable livelihood and would in future, be employers of

labour”, Semenitari said.
Semenitari, who said that the Commission was determined to create

entrepreneurs from the Niger Delta region, added that the NDDC/KONGA.COM

partnership is one of the avenues towards achieving the goal.

The 6,300 beneficiaries are expected to undergo training at designated

centres in the 9 states prior to their full engagement.
