Lagos organises safety survey of vocational institutions, centres
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.
