Skills Acquisition, Antidote To Unemployment – OSHA Speaker
The Speaker, Osun State House of Assembly, OSHA, Mr Timothy Owoeye says the antidote to youths’ restiveness and unemployment remains skills acquisition.
The Speaker stated this during the turning of the sod for the foundation laying of a workshop building which he donated to Federal Science and Technology College in Ilesha.
Mr. Owoeye who commended the management of the school for allowing him to donate the building, emphasised the importance of science and technology to the survival of any economy and how it can create avenue for employment.
He pointed out that unemployment has been a major problem bedeviling the lives of Nigerian youths, causing increased militancy, kidnapping, unrest, socially delinquent behaviours and other social vices.
The speaker, however, called on government at all levels to urgently fund technical schools, as a way to relieve the burden of unemployment, crime and poverty.
The School’s Director of Principals, Mrs. Idowu Akinbamijo, commended the speaker for the donation of the workshop building saying the building is another milestone in the history of the school.
Mrs. Akinbamijo said the building would boost the academic prowess of the students and it would be very useful in technical education and training for the students.
