The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) has conducted a one day forum for key players under the Skills for Job Component of Youth Employment and Social Support Operation (YESSO) in Osun State.
The interactive meeting which brought together members of the private sector operators, government officials and NDE S4J team is one of the implementation plans before the actual commencement of Skills for Job Training in any participating state.
In his address at the event, the director general of the NDE, Dr Nasir Mohammed Ladan said the forum was aimed at sensitising and exposing stakeholders to skills for Job implementation modalities.
Ladan who spoke through the NDE-YESSO focal person, Roseline Olaomi also said the forum is targeted at the training of youth using the public training institutions and to also set a framework for the development of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), which shall serve as a working document between government of State of Osun and Private Sector Operators.
He further used the platform of the meeting to inform participants that YESSO was introduced by the World Bank as a Youth Employment and Social Services Initiative to support states with verifiable safety net system to reduce poverty and is targeting extremely poor families, semi-skilled and unemployed youth
Dr. Ladan expressed delight at the government of the State of Osun for being a key partner in the implementation of the World Bank assisted YESSO operation and similar state owned Employment scheme.
According to him ‘’It is on record that the state government through the creation of O’ YES, has made an indelible mark in the quest to change the living condition of the citizenry from the state of poverty to prosperity.”
He commended the state governor, Ogbeni Aregbesola for his determined effort to reduce the twin problem of poverty and Unemployment.
