The Edo State Skills Development Agency (EdoJobs) in partnership with Slot Foundation have concluded plans for a six-month training on mobile phone and laptop repairs and maintenance for 100 youths in Edo North Senatorial District of the state.

Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Skills Development and Job Creation, Mrs. Ukinebo Dare, disclosed this in a chat with journalists, stressing the state government’s determination to equip youths with in-demand skills to make them self-reliant.

She said the training programme would hold in Etsako West Local Government Area in Edo North Senatorial District and is open to residents in Edo North axis of the state, adding that similar training programmes have held in other senatorial districts of the state.

The training is designed for youths in Edo North axis. The idea is to train them to be self-employed such that they would have skills that are highly sought after.
