Firm charges government on skill acquisition
The Managing Director of a technical service company, Equilog, Aaron Iyama has called on the government at all levels to invest more in training youths on skill acquisition so as to eradicate the problem of unemployment in the country.
Aaron made this call in Lagos at a section on the free training programme for crane operators and safety organised by the Equilog Institute. He said there is need for government to invest in the youths to eliminate kidnapping, youth restiveness and reduce unemployment. “Today, with the high level of development in the real estate industry, oil and gas, construction industries in Nigeria, crane operators are in high demand.”
Managing partner of Equilog said the training has a proven safety track record with years of experience in delivering quality industry leading training solutions for customers. About 2000 people have been trained on mobile crane, excavator, forklift and pay loader. The trainees also learnt how to fight fire properly, handle chemical and other basic first aid.
