- By Waliat Musa

THE Lagos State Safety Commission ( LSC), in conjunctio­n with Lagos Bureau of Statistics ( LBS) and Ministry of Economic Planning and Budget, has organised safety survey of vocational institutio­ns/ centres in Lagos State.

In his keynote address at the event, the Director-General, LSC, Mr. Lanre Mojola, implored youths to embrace entreprene­urship and vocational skills, as it would help them contribute to the economic growth of the state and the country in general, aside from being self- reliant and employers of labour.

Mojola maintained that vocational and entreprene­urship- training programme engaged the youths in activities that would make them contribute to the socio- economic developmen­t of the society and shun vices capable of underminin­g the developmen­t efforts of the state government

According to him, once they have one or two vocational trainings, barely one or two years, they would be employers of labour, hence our decision to team up with LBS to take a safety survey of vocational institutio­ns and have safety data of the centres.
