No fewer than 468 youths from ages 15 to 30 have benefited from technical training on how to produce cosmetics, bakery products, online business, hats and shoes.
The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church sponsored the training which lasted for over a month.
Some of the beneficiaries were Muslim children resident in Calabar and its environs.
Presenting certificates to the beneficiaries, the South-South Region Two Mega Overseer of the church, Pastor Mike Ikonne, said the two main aims of the training were to equip the youths with skills and also dissuade them from illicit activities during this ongoing ASUU strike.
Ikonne called on the youths to put to use the technical skills they have acquired for the benefit of all.
He called on the youths not to be ashamed of starting small in developing their businesses to become big.
“No matter how little you begin, God will open doors for you and you will grow big,” he said.
Also speaking, Pastor James Obok Ogede, the Regional Overseer, Youth Region 17, said about 5000 youths have been trained since the beginning of the programme in 2015
