It is a great pleasure for me to be here and be part of this auspicious programme.
Permit me to remind this great gathering that about a year ago, the Distinguished Senator Oluremi Tinubu representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, who was ably represented by the former Honorable Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation (WAPA), now Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Hon. Dr. (Mrs) Lola Akande came to commission this ICT Center; this was part of our promises to ensure that youths in Ojodu LCDA and its environs are well Equipped, Empowered to withstand and surmount the economic challenges in order to live productively in this 21st Century.
Therefore, this maiden graduation ceremony is a testimony to the success and productivity of the ICT scheme, and Vocational Skill Acquisition Training Center; where our women are being empowered in Ojodu LCDA.
Our administration is committed to the intellectual and mental growth of the youths. In this regard, I implore you, who have participated in this year’s ICT Summer School, Skills and Vocational Training to make adequate use of all that have been learnt for your betterment, and for the growth of the society at large.
The ICT world is a dynamic one with lots of inherent potentials that are capable of turning one’s fortune around for good, if properly harnessed.
Permit me also to acknowledge the efforts of the tutors and facilitators of SAGE AND ARTISAN ENTERPRISES who have ensured that qualitative training and tutelage have been given to the students.
In conclusion, I assure you all that this is just the beginning of such feat, because we shall not rest on our oars until all our youths are computer literate and economically balanced in order to have a brighter future of our dreams.
