Senator Ned Nwoko, who sits in the upper house of the National Assembly and represents the Delta North senatorial district, has voiced serious concerns about the future of Nigerian youth.
During his assessment tour in Asaba, the capital of Delta State, Nwoko expressed his concerns during an impromptu visit to the Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Center.
“I’m happy with what I saw on the ground and the management of the center,” he remarked after touring the skill acquisition center.
“Aside from the fact that the Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Center management helped me win the Senate, I’m glad that each of you is taking steps to further your careers.
“My main concern is the future of Nigerian citizens and youths in general; the skills acquisition center will give them the training they need to become economically independent and self-sufficient.”
As a senator, Nwoko insisted that he worries about the future of young people and all citizens, emphasizing that the skills acquisition center will give them the training they need to become economically independent.
In order for more Nigerian youth, particularly those from Delta North, to benefit from the Skills Acquisition Center, he pledged to help fund it.
The senator expressed his admiration for the standards and caliber of work at the skills acquisition center.
Mr. Emmanuel Okocha, the president of the Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Center, clarified that the establishment of the center was prompted by the center’s satisfaction with Nwoko’s mentoring abilities.
Okocha praised the senator for visiting and funding the facility and gave his word that the Skills Acquisition Center would continue to operate in order to train more young people and keep them off the streets.
He said that youths in Delta North had received training from the skills acquisition center in a variety of vocational and technical fields, including fashion design, photography, ICT, cosmetology, soap making, weaving, and other fields.
