August 11, 2011 – New Job Network Centre Opened in Akwa Ibom State
Nsima Ekere, the Deputy Governor of Akwa Ibom State, has inaugurated a multi-purpose Job Network Centre donated by Senator Helen Esuene, representing Eket District.
Ekere commended the foresight of Esuene for setting up a facility that would meet the needs of her people. He said that the emergence of representatives, who are responsive to the aspirations of the people, was a result of the political reforms of the president, which has restored the power of choosing their leaders.
The centre, located at 58 A Grace Bill Road, Eket, is equipped with training facilities to prepare job seekers for interviews and selection tests.
Esuene said that the centre was the fulfilment of her dream of creating job opportunities for suitable candidates from her constituency.
She restated her resolve to reduce unemployment and urged the organised private sector and the government to collaborate with the centre by using its services to source for manpower.
“I have come face to face with the frustrations and trauma of unemployed people,” she said. “Experience as an entrepreneur has shown that some vacancies are filled by contact and often sourcing for the right candidates can be a nightmare for employers.
This Job Network Centre will bridge the gap by providing a ready database of qualified manpower for employers and saving them the time and resources usually expended on advertisements.” Daily times
