NITDA begins training for 280 artisans, youths in Oyo, Gombe, two other states
National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has commenced a capacity development program for artisans and under-served youths in Digital Literacy and Repair of Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) phone.
The capacity building, which is aimed at addressing the mirage of problems confronting the nation especially the shortage of skills among a large number of our unemployed and underemployed youths would hold in four different states of Gombe, Kogi, Niger and Oyo.
The main purpose of the project is to train youth artisans who already have some skills but need to be empowered with digital skills and ICT tools in order to be competitive in the 21st-century digital economy.
A total number of 70 participants per state, drawn from each of the four states, would be trained for five days between January 10th-14th, 2022, to up their skills in modern-day technologies of repair of mobile phone, digital skills and handling ICT tools. This will enable them to become competitive in this era of the digital economy.
Expectedly, the outcome of the capacity building would help to empower artisan youths in enhancing their businesses and earning a higher income; reduce youth unemployment by facilitating the establishment of more businesses; create new startups and more vibrant artisan community while facilitating entrepreneurship growth and youth advancement across the country.
