Rivers State Deputy Governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Ipalibo Harry Banigo being welcomed by the Coordinator, 2019 Skills Acquisition Training Programme of Redemption Ministries, Pastor Austin Monday to the opening session of the programme at the Church Auditorium, Eastern Bye-pass, Port Harcourt on the 1st Aug. 2019.

Dr. Banigo stated this during the opening ceremony of the 2019 Skills Acquisition Programme of the Redemption Ministries Headquarters, Eastern Bye-Pass, Port Harcourt on Thursday, 1st August, 2019.

The Deputy Governor who noted that skills acquisition is pivotal in obtaining efficiency in life, expressed joy that tertiary institutions in the country are beginning to include entrepreneurial skills as part of their curriculum.

“I am happy that they are doing that now, because many years after graduation from school most graduates cannot find jobs, and do not know what to do, whereas, if they have had some entrepreneurial skills as you have the opportunity to do now, they would have been able to find out what they can do with their lives and contribute positively to society.” Dr. Banigo stressed. 

Dr. Banigo who opined that a skill acquired person is a self-employed person, assured the church of the state Government’s commitment to support and develop the skills of its citizens.

She pledged to support the best one hundred trainees of the programme with starter packs, and urged participant to use the opportunity to develop themselves to enable them contribute positively to the society.

Also speaking the coordinator of the 2019 Redemption Ministries Skills Acquisition Programme Pastor Austin Monday, said the essence of the one-month training programme is to compliment Government efforts by way of empowering participants on how to become self-reliant and also to reduce crime in the society.

He noted that the training will feature presentations from Corporate Affairs Commission, Central Bank, Port Chambers of Commerce Industries Mines and Agriculture (PHCCIMA) as well as Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) and NAFDAC.
