Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige bemoaned the low response to the registration exercise.
“Unfortunately as we speak, by last week, the portal has only recorded about 1,2 million persons,” said Ngige.
“We expect more persons to have been registered in the portal before our screening exercise. The portal closes 31st August 2016 which is just few days away,” Ngige said as he launched the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) School-to-Work Programme in Calabar, Cross River State this past weekend.
He said for members of the public that were not computer literate would get assistance from state governments.
