Experts harp on entrepreneurship as solution to economic woes
An expert in the medium and small scale industry, Norah Esioha, has described entrepreneurship as a solution to joblessness and economic downturn occasioned by the outbreak of COVID-19.
Esioha made the declaration at the celebration of Norah ‘K’ eighth year anniversary, and the official unveiling of Lagos School of Interior Design, in Lagos.
She lamented the condition of youths in Nigeria, with many of them having graduated from the universities for years, and have not been able to secure employment and their predicament to equip themselves with available various entrepreneurial skills that can move their life forward.
Esioha, who doubles as the Chief Administrator, Lagos School of Interior Design, bemoaned the life of those youths who had opted for vices rather than engage in many of the available lucrative business ventures today.
She called on the government to encourage entrepreneurship since the jobs are not there, and can also partner with organizations like hers with a view to training some of the youth who are jobless, which she believed would stem the rate of thuggery and other crimes that have made the youths, the devil’s workshop.
Esioha, a strong player in events management, interior decoration and real estate services, assured that as many youths and other beneficiaries that would key into the empowerment programme, the School offers would be assured of their future.
He encouraged them to instead learn some entrepreneurial skills being undertaken by the School of Interior Design and others such as carpentry, fashion design, agriculture, mechanic, shoe-making among others, adding that with commitment to whatever vocation they choose, and leaning on the Almighty God, they would excel.
