Ebonyi Govt flags off three-month training for youths

The Ebonyi State Commissioner for Skill Development and Job Creation, Elijah Okwu Oko-Udu, has tasked youths in the state to engage themselves in meaningful endeavours that would bring dignity and prosperity to them and the society at large.

Oko-Udu, who made the call during the flag-off skill acquisition training and empowerment programme organised by the ministry in collaboration with BERWO, the pet project of the wife of the governor, said youths should embrace the various acquisition training programmes of Governor Francis Nwifuru, for self-reliance and job creation.

The programme, themed “A Pathway to Improving Quality of Life,” was flagged off by the wife of the state governor, Mrs Uzoamaka Nwifuru, at the Pastoral Centre, Abakaliki, on Saturday.

The commissioner, who highlighted the importance of the programme, emphasised the need to train youths in various skills to equip them for opportunities to be self-sufficient.

“This programme is not merely an event; it is a deliberate commitment designed to empower our youth and ensure that they are equipped to seize the opportunities of the future. Through this initiative, we aim to foster an environment where innovation and entrepreneurship can flourish, driving economic growth and social stability in our state. It will equip our youth, women, and the internally displaced with the skills needed to thrive in various sectors. Whether it be in agriculture, technology, craftsmanship, or entrepreneurship, the training provided will open doors to new opportunities and foster a culture of self-reliance and resilience,” he said.

Oko-Udu urged the participants to be serious about the training, adding that the expectations at the end of the programme were for the participants to become masters in the skills that they had learned.

Speaking directly to the participants, he said: “To the young men and women gathered here today, I urge you to embrace this rare opportunity with enthusiasm and determination. The skills you acquire through this programme will serve as tools to unlock your potential, enabling you to contribute meaningfully to your communities and broader society. Remember, the future belongs to those who prepare for it today. Your participation in this programme is not just an investment in your own future, but an investment in the future of Ebonyi State.”

He also added: “The impact of this initiative is expected to extend beyond individual empowerment. A skilled and empowered population contributes to the overall development of society. It reduces unemployment, alleviates poverty, and creates a more dynamic and robust economy. As more individuals gain skills and secure employment, we will witness a ripple effect of positive change across our communities.
