    Benin, Jan. 27, 2019 (NNN) The Edo Government says it has received an invitation from  the Swiss Government and the International Labour Organisation(ILO)  to share its success story on job creation.

    Mr Crusoe Osagie, the Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy to Gov. Godwin Obaseki, said this in a statement on Sunday in Benin.

    “With not less than 77,000 youths benefiting from the EdoJobs scheme in Edo State, Gov. Godwin Obaseki’s job creation initiatives are gaining international traction.

    “The Swiss Government and the International Labour Organisation have called for insights into how the state government is engaging youths productively for economic growth.

    “This was contained in a letter addressed to the Head, EdoJobs, Mrs Ukinebo Dare.

    “She is scheduled to share the success story of the initiatives developed by the governor at an event tagged ‘Future of Work for African Youth’  and organised by the two bodies to hold in Geneva, Switzerland, on Feb. 7, 2019,” said Osagie.

    Dare is also the Senior Special Assistant to the Edo Governor on Skills Development and Jobs Creation.

    “Organisers of the international conference said she will deliver a lecture alongside the Chief Executive Officer of Youth Employment Service (YES) on “Large Scale job Creation in Nigeria and South Africa” with focus on harnessing the potential of African youth.

    “This comes on the heels of the state government’s intensified efforts to create not less than 200,000 jobs by 2020.

    “Youths in the state are undergoing diverse training and retraining to enable them create jobs, become employable and compete favourably with their peers across the globe,’’ he said.

    Other speakers at the Future of Work for African Youth Conference will be drawn from the academia, private and public sectors across Africa.

    Dare, on her part,  said the event would present a unique opportunity to share the success story of Obaseki’s job creation initiatives which had benefitted no fewer than 77,000 youths in the state.

    According to her, the state government will use the conference to make a statement on its commitment toward actualising its vision for job creation and skills development for youths.

    She added that the forum would also avail her opportunity to share the state government’s premium on Technical and Vocational Education and Training  as well as operations of various clusters for technology, agriculture and production.

    The governor’s aide further said she would  “share how the state is identifying opportunities for youths residing in rural areas and urban centres to gain entrepreneurial skills and leverage on partnerships to achieve results.” (NNN)

    Edo Govt. collaborates with NASRDA on technology solutions

    Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo has expressed his administration’s readiness to

    collaborate with the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) to accelerate the state’s technological

    innovations and processes.

    Obaseki said this when he received a proposal from Prof. Babatunde Rabiu, NASRDA’s Chief Executive of Centre for Atmospheric

    Research (CAR) at Government House, Benin.

    The governor said that the state government had invested in technology solutions and relevant institutions which were implementing

    the solutions in state civil service.

    He expressed the hope that the partnership would allow and improve synergy among institutions implementing technological solutions in the state.

    He said it would be necessary to have a technical partner that would conduct activities so as to have common platform.

    He added that “if we are to accelerate our development and achieve the goals we set for ourselves as a government, technology is

    a ‘sine qua non.’

    “The Edo Ministry of Science and Technology will, in this partnership, serve as the anchor.

    “The state’s Ministry of Education and other institutions of government implementing one form of technology solutions or the other

    could also be brought together to be on the same page.”

    The NASRDA boss said that the proposal was to offer complementary, scientific and technology-based solutions that could enhance

    the state’s sustainable development.

    According to him, the objective of the intervention is to identify and evaluate potential science and technological manpower already

    available in the state.

    He said it would also “harness the unique contributions of the different science and technology bodies for the benefit of the state.

    “The centre is ready to work with the Edo Government with a view to bringing stakeholders within the state,

    communicate contemporary science and technological knowledge and skills to target groups, such as schools and the

    organised public sector.”

    He said it would also engage platforms to train specialised people and groups with the aim of transferring technological

    skills that could enhance their competitiveness.

    Illegal Migration: UNDP collaborates with Edo Govt to empower youths

    The UN Development Programme (UNDP) is to collaborate with the Edo  government to deal with the current challenge of human trafficking and illegal migration by empowering Edo people with skills and trainings.

    UNDP Country Director Samuel Bwalya made this known in Benin at the closing ceremony of  an entrepreneur training skills for 42 Libyan returnees and other youths in the Edo.

    The Country Director represented by a UNDP official, Mr Robert Asogwa, said that the UN agency is commuted to bringing to an end, human trafficking and illegal migration in the state.

    He said that UNDP initiated the training to help the state deal with current the challenges of human trafficking and illegal migration by empowering the youth.

    Bwalya commended Gov. Godwin Obaseki of Edo empowering the youth in the state, stressing that the governor was very passionate about the programme and has demonstrated it

    According to him UNDP prioritised youth empowerment because it was very key to addressing all social vices, whether it is militancy, youth restiveness, or illegal migration.

    “You know that most of the countries that are successful today have their successes linked to entrepreneurship whether it is China, India or elsewhere.

    “At UNDP we have partnership with governments to have robust programme on empowerment on innovation, entrepreneurship, skill acquisition and sustainable finance programmes.

    “Entrepreneur is key even if you don’t get employment you can start your own business and employ others in the next one or two years.

    “We want to create more young entrepreneurs in order to address the insurgency and to stem the youth restiveness.

    “I am sure if we are able to have massive number of youth entrepreneurs we will be able to destroy the business of traffickers, illegal migration,” he said

    He challenged the participants to make use of the training to have the desired change for their lives

    Bwalya said that UNDP was going to create a monitoring scheme to create a data base.

    Earlier,  Obaseki who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Mr Taiwo Akinrele commended the UNDP for the support and partnership as well as commitment towards the programme in the state.

    “The Edo government is committed to skill acquisition particularly to build the capacity of its citizen to take the advantage of the business and new investment in the state

    “We are not discouraging migration but you need to migrate legally which could only be done when you have skill and capacity.

    “We are going to scale up this intervention for others to partake in the programme. We are still going to set up monitoring scheme to help you further,” he said.

    He said that the state had embarked on some developmental projects Benin River Port and Benin Industrial park which he said would give the state a substantial quote in terms of employment.

    One of the trainees, Paul Oshamodiamen, thanked the UNDP and Edo government for organising the training which he said had changed his orientation and focus.

    The 49 year old father of six said that the training would help him to establish a viable business that would make him live happily rather than embarking on dangerous journey again to Libya.

    “I want to say a very big thank you to the UNDP because they remember us to put together the training to help us stabilise in our business.

    They have actually created an impact and added value to my life,” he said

    Another participant,  Elizabeth Obasohan ,  said that the training has help her to expand her hair beauty business

    “I intend to assist my community and immediate environment by employing two or three persons and train others to reduce the number of unemployed youth and stem illegal migration,” she said.

    Obasohan, 28, who is into bead and soap making regretted ever embarking on dangerous journey to Libya advise the youth not to venture going to Libya.

    “I wasted a lot of money going to Libya had it been I knew I would not have gone to Libya but invested my money in something better here

    “I am not going back again to Libya but I will stay back in Nigeria and do what I was thought to do at the training,” she said

    Mr Favour Omosigho, a former primary school teacher, said the training had changed his thinking about doing business and would not have any reason to look for white collar job again.

    The 31-year-old returnee who said his meager income could not sustain him as a teacher before he traveled to Libya hoped that with the training he could become an employer of labour.

    “I can help other youths by employing them and train them to reduce unemployment and stem illegal migration, because as we are talking a lot of youth are still embarking on the dangerous journey,” he said
