Anambra to commence 3rd edition of skills acquisition

Business
Awka, May 4, 2018 (MOI) Ministry of Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy,
is set to commence the 3rd edition of skills acquisition and vocational
training in the state.

The Commissioner for Youth Empowerment and Creative Economy, Bonaventure
Enemali announced this at the National Youth Development Centre, Mgbakwu.

Enemali noted that the programme would also hold simultaneously at all the
21 Local Government Areas (LGA) of the state.

``Gov. Willie Obiano wants Anambra youths to be economically independent,’’
Enemali said.

The commissioner added that the ministry would ensure that all the skills
acquisition centres in the state were put to maximum use, so as to take
Anambra youths out of crime.

``The state is going to collaborate with the Federal Government to equip
and make maximum use of the centres and provide the needed facilities for
training.

``I am not happy that we have massive structures like this that we can use
to empower the youth and we are not using it.

``The ministry will ensure that the facility is put to maximal use,’’
Enemali re-assured.

The Principal of the National Youth Development Centre, Mbaukwu, Mrs Grace
Ogbuji, urged the state government to constantly utilise the centre for
skills acquisition and vocational training of Ndi Anambra youths.

``The structure is an advantage to Ndi Anambra,’’ Ogbuji said.

The last edition of this training was held in June last year, where no
fewer than 150 youths from different registered youth organizations, were
trained in different skills.

The training is in skills, such as shoe making, confectionery, computer
repairs and solar energy production. (MOI)
