A total of 28 youths amongst whom are graduates have been trained in Carpentry skills, Carbinetery and Furniture-making by the Abuja Enterprise Agency (AEA).

The three months training which took place at Dazzle Carpentry factory, Dei Dei, Abuja had 26 men and two ladies.

One of the trainees who is also a graduate of Political Science from Benue State University, Agbo Godwin Ochigbo said the training gave him an opportunity to learn a skill with which he can set up a business.

Dazzle carpentry gave me a new opportunity to learn. I discovered that the training opened up my mind to think creatively.  Aside from being a graduate, who was looking for a white-collar job, learning this skill has given me an option to help myself and think of what I can do creatively. With the skill I have learnt, I can start-up a business and start earning some money for myself. Ochigbo said.

The Secretary of the Education Secretariat of the FCTA Dr. Bala Mohammed Liman said the training was important to get youths away from unemployment.  He said skills acquisition has a way of helping people find their talent and path in life.

The MD/ CEO of Abuja Enterprise Agency (AEA), Mallam Arabi Muhammed Tukur in his address said the programme  will create the next generation of business leaders, because they have been empowered with the relevant vocational skills.
