In his opening remarks, The Director-General of the Agency, Hon. Olubunmi Amao stated that the prospect of a skill acquisition training programme among youths and women in contemporary Nigeria is an initiative that would foster national growth and development.

The Former Special Adviser in Oyo State explained that such is important because women and youths are drivers of global economy and any country whose youthful population is gainfully employed will in turn witness steady progressive changes.

“Undoubtedly, in most advance countries of the world, particularly in Asia, their success is hinged on the combination of skill acquisition programmes (i. e technical education) with conventional educational system.
