    Abuja Chamber of Commerce trains 11 persons on technological skills

    The Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), has trained 11 persons in the first batch of its technical facilities operations and maintenance training.

    The Chamber said that the training designed for members of staff of government agencies and private organisations was part of measures to further enhance skills development in Nigeria.

    Speaking during closing of the training on Friday in Abuja, the President of ACCI, Dr Al-Mujtaba Abubakar, said that the beneficiaries would contribute their quota to the growth of the economy.

    Represented by Prof. Adesoji Adesugba, the 2nd Deputy President of ACCI, Abubakar, said that the one-year training was in collaboration with SKYE, GIZ, SEQUA and the Industrial Training Fund (ITF).

    According to him, the chamber currently operates four centres which includes the Abuja Trade Centre (ATC) Business Entrepreneurial Skills and Technology (BEST) Centre, Policy Advocacy Centre (PAC) and Dispute Resolution Centre (DRC).

    “The BEST Centre being the training and capacity development arm of the chamber, has in the past few years supported youth empowerment through various vocational skills training programmes,” Abubakar said.

    He said that the centre has trained over 2000 persons including women and youths in various skills and capacity development programmes.

    Also speaking, the Director of ACCI Best Centre, Dr Tinuke Temitope, said that the training was to further boost employability skills in the country.

    Temitope said that the training combined classroom-based learning with practical workshop and industry experience.

    “The blend of theory and practice is geared toward giving trainees a head start into employment since they acquire not only the required technical knowledge, but also gain hands-on experience by the time training has been completed.

    “We believe by following this approach, the employability of young Nigerians will improve significantly,” she said.

    According to her, the process of implementing the training started in May 2020 when the GIZ, SEQUA project partnered with ACCI to review the national occupational standards and occupational profiles of six trades.

    “They include office administration, industrial mechanics, industrial electronics, electrical and solar installation and technical facilities operations and maintenance.

    “Inputs from the private sector and all relevant stakeholders were extensively captured during the review process,’’ she said.

    In his goodwill message, the Director-General of ITF, Sir Joseph Ari, said the Fund would continue to collaborate with ACCI toward empowering the youth through vocational skills acquisition.

    Represented by Omotowa Tunji, Assistant Director of Training in ITF, Tunji urged the participants to leverage on the skills acquired during the training and contribute their quota to the growth of the nation’s economy.

    Sharing their experiences, Mr Ibrahim Udi on behalf of the 11 graduates said that the training exposed them to more knowledge about facility maintenance.

    “I thought I knew some things but in the course of the training I knew better,’’ Udi said.

    He commended the organisers for the opportunity and urged government agencies and the private sector to release their employees for such training.

    She said disability was both a human and development issue, adding that global focus had been on addressing disability challenges that continually threatened human existence and attainment of meaningful development.

    Farouq said that women and girls with disabilities suffered the double burden of being women and also living with disabilities.

    Farouq added that the global economic crises was affecting woman and girls with capabilities.

    “Thus, my ministry through the Special Needs Department, thought it wise to organise training to enhance the skills of the trainees in the selected trades, build entrepreneurship skills and enhance their employee-of-labour potential.

    “It may interest you to note that this training is just a pilot phase with the intention of scaling up to other states of the federation.

    “I understand that 19 of you received the training, with 12 in hospitality and Event Management, while seven had cosmetology and Make Up. I advise that you all make good use of this opportunity to improve on your livelihoods.

    “We will continue to support you to ensure that you start on a right footing by giving out grants of N100,000 each.

    We will also be following up on you to check how the training has impacted on you,” Farouq said.

    It is also important to note that disability does not mean you are not able to be creative and create value in the society.

    “It is my believe that very soon, you would come to tell me how you are doing and we will follow up on what you are doing.

    Congratulations to you all and please, come back with success stories,” Rabo urged the trainees.

    Similarly, the ITF’s Area Manager, Abuja Area Office, Hajiya Hauwa Mohammed, said that the trainees were leaving better than when they came.

    “We have an unemployment rate of about 33 per cent with under employment rate of about 20 per cent.

    “With these figures, we know that it has become imperative to deepen our collaboration,’’ he said.

    ITF DG urges staff to imbibe reading culture to improve capacities 

    The Director General, Industrial Training Fund (ITF), Mr Joseph Ari, has urged ITF workforce to imbibe reading culture to boost their capacities to be above those they serve.

    Ari, represented by the Director of Research and Curriculum Development, Mr Zachariah Piwuna, gave the charge on Tuesday in Jos, when he declared ITF Library Week open.

    He said that without reading, the workforce would not have the required capacity to effectively discharge the fund’s onerous mandate to provide, promote and regulate quality training in all sectors.

    “ITF is expected to be heads and shoulders above those that we serve, libraries are an absolute necessity if we must be seen to be effectively discharging our onerous mandate.

    “Due to their importance, successive managements in the fund have, over the years, prioritised the libraries here at the headquarters and across our 45 area offices and training centres.

    “We provide libraries with current books and journals and other relevant reading materials for the benefit of the workforce and its host communities.

    “It will not, therefore, be farfetched if I should assert that our excellent corporate performances over the years are a product of our investments in libraries and the resultant exposure of the fund’s workforce to up-to-date knowledge, trends and best practices,” he said.

    Ari further said that libraries were vital to us either as individuals, organisations or societies, as they serve as the repository of academic texts and professional journals, a reservoir of knowledge as well as a hub for research.

    According to him, efforts have been accelerated to adopt relevant and new technologies, including the e-library to expand the quantum of resources available in our libraries.

    He stated that doing was for ease of access to these resources in line with the vision of the incumbent management to fully automate the fund’s business processes.

    “Therefore, the choice of Innovation Technologies for the Libraries of the Future as the theme of this year’s library week is very germane as it will allow us to harness ideas for full deployment of new technologies in our libraries for better service delivery.

    “This is important, especially now that digital libraries are fast becoming the norm all over the world as they combine technology and information resources to allow remote access to educational content.

    “Digital libraries also help in breaking down physical barriers and creating a virtual heritage of information,” he added.

    The guest speaker, Dr Daniel Abubakar of University of Jos, commended the ITF for investing in libraries to boost knowledge sharing.

    Abubakar said that innovation had come stay in modern library and urge the people to update their knowledge of information and communication technologies or be left behind.

    The News Agency of the Nigeria reports that the event featured presentation of books to some staff and guests.

    There were goodwill messages from University of Jos and other institutions.
