Sound education key to sustainable jobs, says Boroh
The National Coordinator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme (PAP) and Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affairs, Brig.-Gen. Paul Boroh, has emphasized that a robust education system is intertwined with sustainable development and sustainable job opportunities for the youths.
According to him, socio-economic development could best be achieved through a sincere investment in human capital so as to engender the productive capacities of the citizenry. He noted that the essence of education was to provide adequate knowledge to the local community to cope with the professionals and provide social values for development.
Represented by his Senior Integration Officer, Jude Gbaboyor, during a visit to 200 beneficiaries undergoing training in automobile engineering at Innoson Manufacturing Company Limited in Nnewi, Anambra State, the PAP chief maintained that the further acquisition of skills increases their chances of better employment with its accompanying fantastic earning in a bid to reintegrate them seamlessly into the society.
He noted that the programme, under his watch, was poised to creating an environment where the beneficiaries could develop their full potential and lead productive lives, pointing that development was about expanding the choices people value.
Earlier, the project coordinator, Isikan Ekaette, said the training was to ensure that beneficiaries were equipped with sellable and employable skills to enable them live decently.
