A member of the House of Representatives Hon. Jide Jimoh, has called for the inclusion of Entrepreneurship and Vocational studies in curriculum at the nation’s higher institution of learning.
The federal lawmaker believes it will reduce high rate of Nigerian graduates seeking for white collar jobs after their university study.
He made the call during the inauguration of his two weeks free Empowerment and Skill Acquisition training program for his constituents held on Sunday.
He said his decision to come up with the initiative was to support government in area of poverty alleviation as well as boost skill acquisition at the grassroots.
He called on residents within his constituency to take full advantage of the program which according to him has no political or ethnic coloration.
On his part, the Executive Director Centre for Youth Development and Skill Acquisition, Comrade Alaba Olapade said the two weeks free empowerment training will hold simultaneously in Lagos Mainland Local Govt and Yaba Local Council Development Area.
He said participants will undergo training in Digital Photography, Screen Printing, Shoe and Leather work, Textile Design and Make Up.
