“I am excited to declare this training open, which is the second in less than two weeks. I was here two weeks ago to declare open a training for people with disabilities and now with able people. What we are doing is to affect the lives of every Nigerian irrespective of status. We are to develop a globally competitive human capital with the aims of equipping them with training to make them globally employable,” Dr. Olatunji said.

He advised the beneficiaries of the training to value it as key in helping them to achieve crescendo, declaring, “Only if you know this training this training can help you reach your goal of sufficiency and less dependence on the white collar jobs.”
