today, I was at the ongoing 'Craft Create Jobs Development Initiative Boot Camp' at Federal Govt College (Technical) Awka.
At a time like this, when our Nation is faced with unemployment induced crisis, this type of initiative should not only be applauded but recommended.
I am in support of any scheme that will create jobs for our young people.
Major Economic Growth Blocks are factors that create jobs and this scheme is one of such.
Summary of what I told participants at the ongoing 'Craft Create Jobs Development Initiative Boot Camp' at old GTC, Awka: -- I Urged them to be the best in any skill they have interest in and not to play with any skill they learn. -- I told them to be serious with this scheme, that beyond conventional education, realities requires that they must acquire skill for sustainability. -- In doing your job, be driven by passion to achieve success through creating #Value
rather than racing to make money. -- It is passion in what you do that will drive value and value will attract money for you. Do not rush for money, go for value first.
Once you have created value, money will chase after the value you created. -- I also informed them that due to my passion to see skill driven jobs, I have been part of the effort to develop and equip many Technology related Institutions of learning. -- I have attracted many strategic projects and programs at Technology Incubation Centre, Nnewi, so as to equip that center as the hope of our future. -- Knowledge is power, don't play with it.
When we call for Institutional help, it is about Public Policy response to issues that face us as a people.
Above all, #WE must remain focused on how to solve our problems and by 'we', I mean everyone of us, irrespective of Age, Social Strata, Educational Level, etc. #YouAreImportant
I want to assure you that
