The youths, drawn from the six area councils of the FCT, underwent six months’ extensive training under the basic-national open apprenticeship scheme in different fields including plumbing, catering, fashion design, metal installation, computer training among others.
Presenting the certificates to the pioneer participants at the graduation ceremony held at the Multi-Purpose Model Skills Acquisition Centre, Bwari, FCT, the coordinator, Lady Edna Ofodile, said the training was targeted at arming the youths with skills to make them self-employed for job and wealth creation.
“The NDE is situating its operations within the mainstream of the economic restructuring of the current administration and the milestone of relevant reform policies by reducing poverty through productive activities, self -reliance and wealth creation in self-employment,” she added.
She challenged the beneficiaries to take full advantage of the exercise by translating the acquired skills to better the lives of their families, as well as further reduce the number of unemployed youths in the society.
While appreciating the invaluable contributions of the master trainers, who she described as veritable component of the training, Ofodile pledged the organisation’s readiness to assist the beneficiaries through accessing small and medium enterprises funds from relevant stakeholders.
One of the beneficiaries, Samuel Kabo, promised not to bury the acquired skills but to put them to useful ventures to ensure he becomes a functional member of the society.
