The member representing Ajeromi-Ifelodun Federal Constituency, Hon. Kalejaiye Paul, has revealed plans to convert a printing press belonging to the federal government in Apapa, Lagos to a skill acquisition centre.

The lawmaker who made this known during a thanksgiving concert, tagged: ‘Merciful God and talent hunt’ held in Ajegunle, described the printing press as being moribund.

“I intend to pursue my project on skill acquisition. The federal government press that is there is lying fallow,” he said.

He stressed that economic empowerment through skill acquisition will help the youths in the constituency to become financially dependent and boost economic activities.

“We are working assiduously to ensure that we convert the printing press to a skill acquisition centre where we can engage in skill acquisition. Some graduates are unemployable because they don’t have the entrepreneurial skills that will make them survive in a competitive society,” he said.

He said the concert is a way of appreciating God, preaching love in the community and identifying talents.

The Olu of Iwa and Apapa Kingdom, Oba Moroof Oyekunle, lauded the effort of the lawmaker to convert the abandoned printing press to a skill acquisition centre.

For the talent hunt, 200 choristers participated in the competition with six in the final stage.

In his address, the Chairman of the Talent Hunt and Judges Committee, Olusegun Osinaike, stated that N3 million has been set aside to be won by the finalists.

He said the first position will get the sum of N1 million; second, N750,000; third, N500,000 while the others will get consolation cash prizes.
