The Managing Director of the North East Development Commission (NEDC) Muhammad Alkali has disclosed that under his watch, the commission has deployed massive use of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to build capacity of the youth of the region to create digital jobs and reduce unemployment.

The NEDC boss told a press conference in Abuja that it has become incumbent on the commission to rehabilitate and revamp the economy of the six states of the region that were battered by the Boko Haram insurgency.

He noted that through a demand-driven policy the commission also focuses on mobilising the potential of the region for stability and development in agriculture, trade, commerce and industry.

Alkali, who applauded President Muhammadu Buhari for establishing the commission, stressed that the infrastructure and social intervention programme of the commission is demand -driven which places priority on rebuilding the massive agriculture belt of the region for food security.
