Mr Anyanwusaid the gesture was to enable the unemployed graduates acquire the necessary skills that would help them in life and also assist them set up their own business.
We will help inculcate entrepreneurial skills in some Nigerian youths through our learning initiatives for entrepreneurs and free skill acquisition programmes.
According to him, the programme is aimed at creating critical mass human resources with entrepreneurial skills and the right attitude to combat unemployment.
We hope to set up different training centers, help young people establish their own business while those who are already gainfully employed are taught how to open up other multi-streams of income while on their jobs.
“poverty and inequality levels remain unacceptably high and one of the reasons for this is the challenge of creating the right jobs for a rapidly growing youth population”
