Fast-growing courier firm, Tradeways Express International Limited and Edu Hub Consults, have announced the introduction of a job portal ‘TheMap.Online’.

This initiative is borne out of the need to engage the unemployed and underemployed in the country, particularly, the youth.

According to internet infrastructure developer, Edu Hub Consult, Anyanso MMA, the newly created portal would  change the economy, empower the youths and boost economic activities within the value chains.

“Evidently, there is an increase in unemployment, high living cost with low standards; rural-urban migration, leading to abandonment of resources with false assumptions that certain areas offer better opportunities. However, every part of Nigeria has a unique opportunity for the people. We want to change these trends through ‘TheMap’, he said.

He explained that the two collaborating firms were targeting one million jobs, out of which they  would be offering Federal Government candidates about 10, 000, free online shops; another 10,000 for each of the 36 States, FCT and Local Government candidates, making a total of 370, 000 free online shops.

He added that they had made provision for 30, 000 free online shops   for the  internally displaced persons.

“The remaining 600, 000 free online shops out of the 1 million goes to every other Nigerian intending to start or already operating a retail business” , he said.
