How to apply for NDDC Project HOPE recruitment

Following the launching of the Holistic Opportunity Projects of Engagement (HOPE) by the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) to create jobs for the youths of the Niger Delta to cushion the effect of unemployment in the region, a portal for registration has been made available.

The Niger Delta region, known for its vast natural resources, has long been in dire need of sustainable development initiatives that can uplift the lives of its youth and foster economic growth. In a bid to address this pressing issue, the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) has launched an ambitious and innovative project called “HOPE” – an acronym for Holistic Opportunity Projects of Engagement. This groundbreaking initiative aims to create 1,000 jobs per state in the Niger Delta region by leveraging a comprehensive database of youth skills and needs. Through HOPE, the NDDC envisions a brighter and more prosperous future for the region’s residents, catalyzing positive change and sustainable development.

The HOPE project is meant to provide 1000 jobs for each of the States under the Niger Delta Commission through skill development and strategic partnership.

Recall that during the launch of the HOPE project, the MD/CEO of the Commission, Dr Samuel Ogbuku, mentioned during his speech that Hope will capture the data of the youths including their area of interest, qualifications, and skills.

Only those whose data are captured in the HOPE digital repository will be considered. The MD further called on the youths, entrepreneurs, men, and women of the region to register.
