www.odogwublog.com reports that Anambra state government under Governor Willie Obiano yesterday trained and equipped about Two hundred youths (200) on skill Acquisition.
Governor Willie Obiano who flagged off the event charged the youths to dedicate themselves to the learning and perfecting skills as life is full of mystery and the knowledge could be their life changer.

Obiano represented by the state Head of Service, Barrister Harry Udu warned the youths on indolent attitude in life as it does not pay but encouraged them to utilize the skills to change their status.

Dr Mrs Nwogu, a lawyer, said the training aims at inculcating in the trainees/youths self confidence, equip them with contemporary skills . make them self reliant , take them off the streets and awaken them to the reality that entrepreneurship (self employment and job creation) is a potential career path in the face of dwindling economy/recession and massive youth unemployed in Nigeria.

She reminded that the first edition witnessed 200 youths from the state that are already doing well in their various field of training, adding that her gratitude goes to Governor Obiano for his consistent commitment to the development and well being of the Anambra youths.
Her words: ‘’ I thank the Governor again because of his belief that developing an entrepreneurial mindset in the youths is a panacea to massive youths unemployment and a sure path to economic recovery and growth.
 ‘I am aware of the enormous resources being committed for the success of his programme , all that would not have been possible but for His Excellency’s belief that the future of our state and indeed the entire nation lies in the hands of the youths , hence his resolve to give them the best.


‘’ The Governor’s huge investment in sports has been yielding positive results as many of our youths are doing very well in representing and winning laurels for our state in various national and international sporting activities. It is important to reiterate that some of the participants trained last year have established their own businesses and are doing very well. We cannot therefore thank His Excellency enough for this show of love.
