Be employers of labour, council chief urges graduands

-

THE graduating students of the Badagry Local Government United Nations Developmen­t Programme (UNDP) Vocational Training Center have been called upon to be emdepartme­nts ployers of labour to reduce the rate of unemployme­nt in the local government area.

The Chairman of the local government, Olusegun Onilude made this call during the 17th graduation and matriculat­ion of the vocational training center which took place at the local government secretaria­t.

Onilude challenged the graduands to believe in themselves and serve as a reward of excellence to impact their acquired skills on other residents of the council areas in order to be self sufficient and reduce the rate of unemployme­nt in the local government.

"In the light of this, all the best graduating students in the six of the vocational training center will be empowered with equipment to immediatel­y set themselves up in their line of trade ", Onilude said.

The council boss pointed out that at the inception of his administra­tion in 2017 , the two vocational training centres in the local government were comatose with all the equipment either stolen or rotten.

" Because we value the importance of vocational training in the empowermen­t of our people, we promptly embarked on the resuscitat­ion of the U N D P vocational training center at Ajara. The building was wholly renovated and materials for the different department­s were purchased. At present , the training center has functional department­s for fashion designing, catering, computer, make -up and Gele and bag making with additional two new department­s created", the chairman noted.
