The Youth Centre for Industrial Training, an arm of the Peter Akinola Foundation, has flagged off a nine-month training programme for 134 youths in Ogun State.

The beneficiaries are being trained in building construction, metal and aluminium fabrication, ICT, fashion designing, electrical installation and catering.

The foundation also distributed working tools to the beneficiaries.

The director of the foundation, Tunde Awolana, said the centre has graduated no fewer than 1,500 youths in the last 14 years.

“In the last 14 years, we must have turned out no fewer than 1,500 graduates and the feedback we get from them is encouraging,” he said.

In his remarks, the Alake of Egbaland, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo, charged philanthropists and other well-meaning Nigerians to support the government by training and engaging the youths in productive activities.

“Government cannot do everything and we should not expect them to do everything, so we are telling our people that whatever they can do to improve the lot of people, especially the youths, they should not hesitate in doing it.

“This is the effort of one man sent by God and he attracted people to himself and God has now helped him to raise this institution to the level that it is today,” Alake said.
