Financial Watch gathered, according to a statement by Edmund Onwuliri, the Deputy Director of Information and Public Relations at the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), the training is part of the exit strategy being rolled out for the participants of the programme.

The 774,000 jobs were described as a transient job scheme that lasted for three months and was conducted under the Extended Special Public Works (ESPW) Programme of the Federal Government and implemented by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment through the National Directorate of Employment (NDE).
