Wife of Rivers State governor, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike, has called for the promotion of skills acquisition and vocational training among women and youths as peace building measure.
She spoke yesterday during the closing and graduation ceremony of the Nigeria Air Force Wives’ Association (NAFOWA) Skills Acquisition and Vocational Training in Port Harcourt.
She said that people with relevant vocational skills would focus their attention on productivity, adding that they would have no time for vices.
Nyesom-Wike said: “When people are equipped with skills, they are able to support their families. They have more time to be productive and less time to foment trouble. This is a very certain way to contributing to peace. Somebody who is occupied will not have time for vices.”
The Rivers first lady noted that those with relevant vocational skills would be relevant in future as they would be the driving force of societal growth because of the services they provide.
She urged women to also aspire to acquire vocational skills in more technical areas to improve their level of empowerment, stressing: “It is important for people to have skills even if they are formally educated. Skills acquisition is the trend worldwide.”
The governor’s wife commended NAFOWA for its commitment to programmes that are relevant to the growth of people in the community.
In her address, National President of NAFOWA, Hajiya Hasfat Sadique Abubakar, said that from May 2016 till date over 800 participants had benefited from the skills acquisition and vocational training programme.
Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar urged the graduating students to remain focused
