Abstract

The study investigated how Unemployment problem is tackled through Skills Acquisition by the National Directorate of Employment (NDE) in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. Different measures have been adopted by the government to tackle the challenge with very little result. Using data obtained from both primary and secondary sources for the period 1987-2012, we found that positive link exist between Skills Acquisition by NDE and Unemployment reduction in Akwa Ibom State even though not without daunting challenges. However, the results of the income contributions of Skills Acquisition by NDE to the States’ economy were mixed. While 48% asserted to a positive link, 40% accepted a minimal influence. Thus, we recommend more spread of NDE training centers to all the Local Government Areas in the State for more benefits to be realized, among others.
