Mr. Mark Onoja spoke on digital technology, Mr. Joseph Ogundare made a presentation on critical thinking and problem solving, Mr. Richard Obi spoke on personal effectiveness while Mr. Akinkunmi Awotundun and Mrs. Damilola Osikoya spoke differently on communication skills.

Mr. Joseph Ogundare, who spoke with our reporter after the event, said that, as an internet professional, this event is important because this program gives the youths a guide to being a professional. An ability to learn is what also makes the difference.

Alhaji Abiso Kabir of Walwanne Foundation a co-sponsor of the event, had this to say: “The purpose of today’s event is to gather the youths, give them training, and help them to get employment, white collar jobs. But we also teach them to have vision and be self-reliant in society. We want to train them in a way that they will be able to represent themselves in society.

“Yes, we have started here in Lagos, but we are going to have another one in Abuja, and also Maiduguri and all other parts of the nation. It is our responsibility to work and bring out the excellence in our youths. The time to work on this, is now as the rate of unemployment is high, so we are trying to see how we can push the youths, so that they can be able to see how to acquire more knowledge from this programme and gain good employment.

Gbemisola Ajide (Slickace Ltd) said the purpose of organising the training seminar is to give youths the opportunity to learn, network, and equip them with essential skills for career success.
