Phase 2: Anambra trains 200 youth on skills acquisition

The Anambra State government has trained some 200 youth from the 21 Local Government Areas of the state on skills acquisition, reports ITRealms.

The programme, ITRealms gathered was put together by the Anambra State Government through the Ministry of Youth, Entrepreneurship and Sports Development.

The Commissioner, Youth, Entrepreneurship and Sport Development, Barr. Mrs Uju Nwogu, said in Awka that the training is in line with the efforts of Gov. Willie Obiano to empower the youths.

Also she said, that the training is designed to make the youths self-reliant and self-confident by equipping them with contemporary skills to combat unemployment.

“You may recall that last year at the Youth Centre in Mgbakwu, 200 youths of Anambra State were trained in various self-sustaining skills. “Now less than a year, another batch of 200 will commence the training.

“This is a demonstration of our believe that developing entrepreneurial mind-set in the youths is panacea to economic growth. We are sure that the enormous resources being committed for the success of this programme will be justified.

“Thank God for the governor who has made this possible because he believes in the youth as the future of our state,” she said.


The two-week training is conducted at the Federal Youth Development Centre, Mgbakwu, Awka North Local Government Area.
