This will be the third empowerment program this year following the one at Ikeja Police College in February and one where 1000 graduates were trained in various internationally recognized ICT courses in June. I am therefore happy to attend this event focused on the acquisition of skills in eleven areas of acquisition of skills and various vocations”.

“The aim is to provide gainful employment to young people and women in my senatorial district, West Lagos, regardless of gender, tribe, religion or political affiliation. I am happy that my constituents are beneficiaries of this initiative that I lead in the context of my function as Representative in the Senate to the National Assembly.

“As a legislator for many years, I have placed paramount importance on ensuring that as many young people and women as possible in my Senate constituency receive the required skills and are empowered to establish them in paid self-employment. To this end, many trainings for skills acquisition, entrepreneurship development and ICT as well as empowerment with equipment have taken place in the past with thousands of beneficiaries who are now gainfully employed.”

“Last weekend I organized a staggered 3 day fair in Lagos West at LTV Blue Roof, Ikeja for locally made products with around 100 participating exhibitors to showcase their products, make sales and gain empowerment and the knowledge needed to improve their products and business growth. Some of the exhibitors are the product of previous similar skills acquisition and professional training. I hope that many of the attendees to be empowered here will soon be in the business of producing locally produced goods at the micro, small and medium enterprise (MSME) level.

“As previously indicated, the beneficiaries of these programs were selected without any partisan consideration. Public announcements on mainstream and social media were made for interested candidates to apply and selection was based on the indicated interests of participants on a first-come, first-served basis. In this set of habilitations, a total number of 3000 people trained in leather goods, fashion, hairdressing, barber, fish production, interior decoration/event organization, catering/confectionery, lock block production, solar energy business , Makeup and Gele and The Agricultural Value Chain, will be provided with the necessary equipment and start-up cash grants of various sums. »

In the face of the challenges facing our economy, it is no longer news that there are not many job opportunities in the public and private sectors. In the short term, I believe that many of my constituents can be self-employed with the necessary skills and job training, supported by equipment and start-up grants. It is my motivation to facilitate this program which is still ongoing as many other voters are being trained and will soon be similarly empowered. »

“Let me declare that during the remaining period of my service as a Senator representing the Senate District of Lagos West, I will continue to provide effective representation to my constituents from all walks of life with the resources available to the larger Senate District. of Nigeria in terms of population.I commend all beneficiaries of this program and urge them to diligently apply the skills acquired during their training for their socio-economic development and even for the advancement of society.
