A member of the House of Representatives, Mr Ehiozuwa Agbonnayima, announced on Wednesday that he has sponsored 30 youths on vocational training to make them self-reliant.
He said that the youths were trained in different vocations, including fashion designing, hair dressing, manicure and pedicure, barbing, carpentry, bead-making, shoes and bag making.
The lawmaker said that he had also provided facilities to enable beneficiaries of his training scheme to takeoff in their various trades, disclosing that he had also given them money to pay for shops.
“My effort is to fulfil part of my campaign promises to make youths self-reliant and employers of labour rather than job-seekers or resorting to traveling oversees for greener pastures.
“Most successful men and women all over the world had their roots in small-scale business,” he said.
Agbonnayima advised youths in his constituency to take advantage of the vocational training he was sponsoring to make themselves useful.
