Benue Government is ready to establish small and medium-scale enterprises development agency to provide rapis skills acquisition among youths in the state, Gov. Samuel Ortom has said.
”It is my conviction that relevant industrial skills is a prerequisite to any society that wants to build a vibrant SMEs sub-sector.
”It is also in recognition of this model that I signed the second phase of NISDP in Abuja with the Director-General of ITF few days ago,” he said.
He said that harsh economic situation had made it impossible for his administration to carry out employment at the moment, hence the need to embrace skills acquisition.
Artom said that the graduands had chosen the right path to success and urged them to be foresighted, hardworking, diligent and committed to their chosen vocations.
Ortom also expressed regret that the state was one of the states with the highest number of unemployed youths.
