SKILL ACQUISITION AND EMPOWERMENT TRAINING……….160 receive certificates.
A week- long skill acquisition and empowerment programme organised for youths and women in Yaba LCDA came to an end on Wednesday 13th June 2012 with the award of certificates to the participants. The graduation ceremony, which took place at the Chief Mrs Oluremi Tinubu Hall, was attended by party stalwarts from the Lagos Central senatorial district, members of Executive and Legislative arms, management team, party faithful and members of the public.
The coordinator of Lanyk Venture, the organiser of the training programme, said the aim of going into skill acquisition and empowerment training programmes was to eradicate poverty in Nigeria and to ensure that people were self- reliant and independent. She commended the Chairman, Hon. Jide Jimoh for the opportunity given to them to partner with the council in the training and empowerment of her teeming youths and women in the LCDA. She said that the turnout was encouraging and the participants were so cooperative and that within the few weeks spent, they had been able to start production on their own. To her, the participants had become masters on their own.
The Chairman, in his speech, thanked God Almighty for making the programme a huge success. He lauded Lanyk for partnering with the council while noting that the programme was made possible with the cooperation and approval of the Executive members. He expressed his happiness that through the knowledge and skills they had acquired, the participants were no longer job-seekers but employers of labour. He also announced, to the admiration and applause of the graduands, that the council would provide a token as takeoff grants to assist the participants.
