In an era where the craze for white collar job is on the increase,youths in Osun have been implored to utilize the opportunity provided by the various skill acquisition Programmes being organised by IleriOluwa development Initiatives,an NGO of the wife of the governor of the state,Mrs Kafayat Oyetola.
Doing this will not only get them economically empowered but will also allow them to be creators instead of searchers of labour .
The First lady ,state of Osun,Mrs Kafayat Oyetola gave the charge in Iragbiji ,the headquarters of Boripe local government of the state of Osun .
Speaking at the grand finale of a 5 day skill acquisition training program organised by Ewa beads and sponsored by IleriIOluwa Development Initiatives, her NGO, Mrs Oyetola implored the youths to take advantage of the opportunity so as to be on their own rather than depending on government paid jobs which are now very competitive to get.
At the Programme where Mrs Oyetola was represented by the wife of the SSG,Mrs Bose Oyebamiji, participants were trained on skills like liquid soap making,Izal, Shampoo production , head band, matting on slippers, weaving on slippers, flower beads , rose slippers among other skills that will earn them a living as opposed to being dependants.
Mrs Oyetola added that the training will go a long way in getting the youths prepared for the present and future challenges brought about by the economic downturn in Nigeria .
The Osun first lady stressed that, any economically empowered youth stands a good and better chance of being a potential employer of labour and by extension contributing to the growth and development of the economy of the state of Osun and Nigeria as a whole .
Speaking at the programme ,the Aragbiji of Iragbiji land,oba Abdul Rasheed Olabomi,Odundun the 4th, appreciated the wife of the governor for her humanitarian gesture all the time.
The royal father was of the contention that rather than giving the youths fish to eat,Mrs Oyetola, instead ,chooses to proverbially teach them how to catch their own fish .
Oba Olabomi accompanied with his high chiefs to the event ,prayed God to continue to bless Mrs Oyetola in her daily desire to make a difference for not only the youths of the state but the entire people through her Non Governmental Organisation, IleriIOluwa Development Initiatives.
Certificates of participation were later presented to the participants by Mrs Oyetola through her representative, Mrs Bose Oyebamiji .
The event was graced by the Special Advicer to the Governor on works and Transportation, Engr. Olatoke Olaniyan and a former Permanent Secretary in the civil service of the state of Osun, Alhaji Wahab Adewoyin among other notable personalities.
