Obiekezie who spoke to journalists in Awka, said the youths were trained between November 2018 and August 2020, in confectionery, event management, computer software application, POP, tilling, screening, interlocking, cosmetology and solar installation, among others.

“Since the inception of this administration, Governor Willie Obiano has been a youth friendly governor and has involved the youths of Anambra in the affairs of the state.

“Youths are part of his cabinet and are doing great exploits in the ministries and agencies they are heading. All these efforts are to make sure that youths are fully engaged with skills and knowledge to be economically independent and contribute immensely to the socio-economic development of the state.

“Using an initiative – ‘One youth, one skill,’ we have trained over 700 youths in the state. The idea is to ensure that youths acquire skills that can help them beat unemployment in the country, and it has been working,” the commissioner said.
