Dez Mayorz Report.
The committee members of Sir Allwell Ihunda’s (Mayor of Port Harcourt City) skills acquisition and entrepreneurship programme, under the chairmanship of Hon Dr. Ezebunwo Nyeche, visited all the nine training centers that make up the first batch of the skills acquisition.
The training centers are spread across the Port Harcourt City for the training of the first batch (over 200 youth and women).
The visit was made together with the PHALGA media aides, supervisor for Women and Social Affairs, Hon. Mrs Blessing Ade Nmerukini and others.
Speaking to the trainees, the Special Adviser to the Mayor on Women and Social Affairs, Mrs Blessing Ade Nmerukini charged the trainees to be focused and utilise this opportunity given to them maximally.
Some of the trainees who spoke to Dez Mayorz Media and PHALGA media team said they are very delighted for the opportunity given to them by the Mayor of Port Harcourt City, promised to utilize the opportunity effectively, as they pray for God to continue to bless Sir Allwell Ihunda abundantly.
This is applaudable, as Sir Allwell Ihunda JP, the Mayor of Port Harcourt City is already fulfilling his campaign promises within his 100days in office; which is centred on Job creation and youth empowerment through series of skills acquisition training going on in several training centers in Port Harcourt.
The programme was flagged off by the Commissioner of Youth Development Hon Prince Obi Ohia few days ago.
The various skills considered in the first phase of the programme includes catering and confectionery, ICT, facial makeover, photography, Gele crafts amongst other group of skills based training which include cosmetology, hair dressing, fashion designing, pedicure and manicure.
The smart working Mayor of Port Harcourt City, Sir Allwell Ihunda earlier said on the day of flagoff that Arthurson Business Support Services has been engaged as consultants for the programme.
He added that aside the starter packs that will be given to the beneficiaries at the end of the programme also, periodic grants will be given to beneficiaries who have performed creditably in their businesses.
In no distant time, Port Harcourt City unemployment rate will be reduced drastically because many of Port Harcourt City youths and women will be empowered and skillfully trained through the Sir Allwell Ihunda’s Skills Acquisition Programme, hence minimize crime in the society as the youth now will be kept busy with work.
