Public Relations Officer, NYCN Yewa South Branch.
In continuation of Ogun Youth Skill acquisition and Entrepreneurship training programme of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), Ogun State Chapter, the Ogun State Chairman of the Youth Council, Abdul-Jabar Ayelaagbe today 30th July, 2020 declared open NYCN Yewa South Sanitizer and after Shave Production Empowerment Training.
In his remarks, the Chairman intimated the rationale for the Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship programme which is basically to turn the tide of Ogun youth from job seekers to job creators for vertical and horizontal development of our youth and society. He noted that the project becomes more important given the economic effects of COVID 19 pandemic which has caused job loss to many of our young people. “Corona virus has dealt a big blow on us all. The youth are the worst hit by this pandemic. Some of us have lost sources of livelihood, the job of so many are on the line while take home of several others does not worth it. How do you explain several others who do not have at all? These scenarios are disturbing and unacceptable!”
The Chairman appreciated Adebayo Adeyinka led NYCN Transition Committee in Yewa South for its vision, commitment and passion for a more skillful youth constituency in Yewa South Local Government and for taking it upon themselves to ensure actualization of the project. The Chairman noted with immense appreciation the Committee’s committed efforts since their appointments.
While officially welcoming the State Chairman and participants to the programme, Yewa South NYCN Coordinator noted that the numbers of participants was limited to a person per youth Organization to maintain COVID regulations of the government. He said the programme is designed to touch the grassroots in such a way that all Trainees at the programme will be mandated to train another 50 young people from their respective Organizations in first instance. This, he believed will have multiplier effects on the society at large. He assured the State leadership of many more impactful programmes that the State will be proud of in days to come. He assured those who do not benefit in the first phase of consideration in subsequent programmes.
Participants at the programme included a representative each from youth organizations across different towns in the local government.
