As part of efforts geared towards bringing dividends of democracy to his constituents, the lawmaker representing Ogun East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Buruji Kashamu, in conjunction with the National Directorate of Employment (NDE), has facilitated a three-month skill acquisition programme for the people of the Senatorial District.
The scheme is targeted at addressing the issue of unemployment among the people.
In his message to the over 100 participants, the lawmaker said the training was one of its kind, adding that it was organised to prove to young school leavers in the country that white collar jobs are not enough to go round every job seeker.
“There are other things that people can do apart from white collar jobs to boost Nigeria’s economy”, Kashamu said.
He urged the beneficiaries to seize advantage of the opportunity to better their lives.
Speaking further, Kashamu said the programme is a life- changing one, adding that it will usher them to a lifetime of abundance.
He admonished the participants to be law-abiding, good ambassadors and shining stars in the society.
The training will focus on areas such as computer programming, laying of interlocking tiles, bar and liquid soap production as well as making of body and hair cream.
The elated participants thanked the lawmaker for the wonderful opportunity given to them, promising to make good use of it.
The programme will be anchored by experienced and successful entrepreneurs.
