About NDE

The National Directorate of Employment (NDE) was established in November 1986 with a core mandate of swiftly responding to the rising trend of unemployment among Nigerian youths.


We can’t guaranty the authenticity of the phone numbers of NDE listed in this compilation due to the attitude of government officials. Most times, the the phone numbers they release to the general public do not exist or ring out after several times. However, the office addresses have been confirmed.

One of the programmes of the NDE was to train the youths in skill acquisition for them to be employers of labour and be employable.
