The Founder, Dr. Seun Fadipe, who spoke through the foundation’s Public Engagement Officer, Akeem Adebomojo after the training, said another 30 members of the beneficiaries would be selected to get trained for three months.
He added that at the completion of the training, the foundation would buy all the necessary equipment each successful Corps member would need to establish.
