The senator representing Delta North senatorial district at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ned Nwoko, has expressed deep concern about the future of Nigerian youths.
Nwoko expressed his concern when he paid an unscheduled visit to Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Center during his assessment tour in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
He said, “I have gone round the skill acquisition center and I’m satisfied with what I saw on ground and the management of the center.
“Apart from the fact that the management of Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Centre worked for my election as a senator, I am happy that you all are doing things to assist yourselves vocationally.
“I’m more concerned about the future of Nigerian youths and citizens generally; the skills acquisition centre will provide the necessary training for them and make them economically empowered and self-reliant to themselves.”
Nwoko maintained that as a senator, he is concerned about the future of the youths and citizens generally, stressing that the skills acquisition centre will provide the necessary training for them and make them economically empowered.
He promised to assist in funding of the Skills Acquisition Centre so that more Nigerian youths, especially those from Delta North, benefit from it.
The senator stated that he was highly impressed with the level of quality and standard at the skills acquisition centre.
The President of Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Centre, Mr Emmanuel Okocha, explained that the center was satisfied with Nwoko’s mentoring ability, hence the establishment of the centre.
Commending the senator for his visit to and funding of the center, Okocha assured that the Skills Acquisition Centre will be sustained with a view to train more youths and keep them away from streets.
He said that the skills acquisition centre had trained youths in Delta North in various vocational/technical skills, ranging from fashion design, photography, ICT, cosmetology, soap making, weaving and others.
