EMPOWERING CITIZENS THROUGH SKILLS ACQUISITION
The Executive Chairman of Ojodu Local Council Development Area, Hon. David Olusegun Odunmbaku, has launched a 3-month mega-training program aimed at empowering citizens and residents with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in today’s competitive world. Speaking at the flag-off ceremony held at Oluwole Health Center, Oluwole Ogba on Tuesday, 13th June, 2023, the Chairperson and wife of the Executive Chairman, Mrs Abimbola Odunmbaku emphasized the importance of equipping people with the necessary skills to keep up with the times.
“We recognize that the world is changing rapidly, and we must equip ourselves with the necessary skills to keep up with the times,” said the Chairperson. “Through this training program, we hope to create a pool of skilled individuals who will be able to start their own businesses or secure gainful employment, thereby reducing poverty and increasing prosperity in our LCDA.”
The training program will provide participants with skills in makeup and gele tying, soap and coconut oil making, as well as tie and dye making. These skills are viable business opportunities that have the potential to create jobs and generate income. “We believe that by equipping our people with the skills needed to excel in these areas, we are opening up new avenues for economic growth and development in our LCDA,” said the Chairperson.
The program also has the potential to promote social cohesion and community development. “By bringing together people from different backgrounds and providing them with a common goal, we hope to foster a sense of unity and cooperation among our citizens and residents,” said the Chairperson. “Furthermore, this training program is a prime example of the power of collaboration and partnerships.”
The success of the training program will depend on the dedication and commitment of all stakeholders involved. “We are committed to ensuring that this training program is a success, and we will spare no effort in providing the necessary resources and support needed to make it a reality,” said the Chairperson. “We urge all participants to take advantage of this opportunity and to make the most of it.”
In addition to the economic benefits, the training program also has the potential to promote social cohesion and community development. “This program is a testament to the administration’s commitment to bridging the gap and ensuring that people are not left behind in the race for economic development,” said Odunmbaku. “We are committed to ensuring the success of the program and urge everyone to work together towards the common goal of building a better future for our LCDA.”
The Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation (WAPA) Department, and all the astute tutors, were recognized for their tireless efforts in making the program a reality. “Their efforts have been invaluable in ensuring that we are able to provide this opportunity to our citizens and residents.”
