” This aspect of the scheme has been an integral objective of the scheme from the onset but it only sometime in 2012. This training started on the 21st of February, and today, we are celebrating your successful completion.

“Today’s world is evolving and we must evolve to conform with contemporary realities. The population explosion means that there is added pressures on the available jobs. It is therefore imperative that we acquire practical skills that will aid in earning an honest living. You are introduced to the skills. Don’t assume that you are experts already. You have a long way to go. Continue the training after the orientation course.

“We are partnering with agencies for funding options which may be open to you for participation in the course of your service year. Every nation is as rich as the skills of her citizens. We are struggling as a nation because we do not have enough skills. As we grow in skills, we would surmount our challenges.

“I therefore urge you to strive to create employment for the upcoming generation through your skills. Focus on your skills and think of how best to deploy it for maximum impact” he said.

Dr Hannatu Joshua who is a graduate of Human Anatomy trained in making 3D floors. She said that the training is not only inspiring but also fun.
