Youths Should Acquire Skills to Tackle Unemployment - Ogunlewe

On Saturday, an Ex Works Minister, Senator. Adeseye Ogunlewe tasks youths on skills acquisition to tackle unemployment and economic hardships in Nigeria.Youths Should Acquire Skills to Tackle Unemployment - Ogunlewe

Ogunlewe, said at the graduation ceremony of "Free Computer Training Program'', organised by Mr Olusola Sokunle, an administrator, PDP-Oshodi Isolo Constituency I in the Lagos State House of Assembly.

Ogunlewe stated that expanding rate of unemployment was a danger to the future, wellbeing and security of the nation, focusing on that skills acquisition could be utilized to handle the threat.

Today's youth don't have to focus just on formal education; you should have the capacity to accomplish something with your hands.

- Why Nigerian Graduates are Unemployable

There is nothing you can't get to be, on the off chance that you know what you are doing and where you are going; Youths can make billions of naira if they grasp entrepreneurial skills.

Most youths can get to be awesome, on the off chance that they seek after their professions with appropriate arranging, enthusiasm and core interest''.

As per him, numerous youths can likewise get to be successful as cooks, vocalists, PC specialists, style fashioners and food caterers.

Ogunlewe, be that as it may, cautioned them against negative impacts from associate gatherings, asking them to utilize the skills for societal advancement.

In his comment, Sokunle said, "we are graduating no less than 130 students from our computer training institute that was set up established for strengthening of the young people of Oshodi/Isolo Constituency 1.

The computer training activity is a part of my main goal to revamp our abounding young people and the environment, such that Oshodi will be among the best territories in Lagos and the nation.

- Nigeria's Future Graduates Must Be Equipped With Skill

I understand the fact that political power is to be used for the benefit of the people because it is through the people that political elite gain power to develop the society.

I will continue to use education to rebuild the youths of Oshodi and also to position them in the right direction.

I will continue to do my best in developing our youths because they are leaders of today and tomorrow; an investment in the youths is an investment in the future of the nation’’.

Sokunle, then enjoined them to utilise the skilles they had acquired to be good ambassadors of Oshodi. “I urge you to use the skills to empower yourselves, family and society.

Use your skills to explore digital business, digital communication, online marketing, graphic designs and animation. The door of great opportunities will be opening to you”.

In her remarks, Mrs Amidat Anifowose, the Tutor General/ Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Education District VI, said that skills acquisition would help youths to become self-reliant, as well as be employers of labour.

Unemployment has become one of the greatest challenges facing our nation today; most employers now believe in skills and not in certificate acquisition.

It is important to know that the government has done a lot to help the youths to be independent — employers of labour and not employees,’’ Anifowose said.

One of the beneficiaries, Mr Hosea Akhator, described the training as `an eye opener’.

According to him, the education will help to re-brand Oshodi youths as they are full of potential.

We are a regional grouping with 15 Member States in West Africa (three landlocked and one island) with a population of about 300million and an annual economic growth rate of around 6%.

We are currently seeking to employ suitably qualified candidate to fill the position below:
Job Title: Consultant for the Development of Regional Strategy to Promote the Use of LPG as Cooking Energy in the ECOWAS Region

Location:
 Abuja, Nigeria

Job Summary
  • For decades, ECOWAS Member States have been facing major challenges to ensure the well-being and economic development of their population, particularly increasing access to modern energy services. Despite its enormous potential in terms of natural resources on the continent, the region's energy consumption level is among the lowest in the world (1.7% of the world's commercial energy use). The population's access to electricity is only 30% throughout the region. This reflects a very low and inadequate energy consumption level to promote the population's access to basic social services and reduce poverty particularly in rural areas.
  • The region's overall energy assessment is dominated by biomass, which accounts for 80% of total energy consumption. Biomass is mainly used as household energy for cooking and heating in rural, pen-urban and urban areas. Indeed, the low purchasing power of the population does not allow them to have access to modern cooking energy under current market conditions. The immediate impacts of this situation are deteriorating health of populations and environmental degradation.
  • Access to LPG remains limited and well below 5% throughout the region with an offer only concentrated at over 80% in major cities. These indicators show that despite the encouraging results achieved so far, efforts should continue to be deployed at national and regional levels to make LPG the preferred domestic energy of the population in the ECOWAS region.
  • The regional stakeholders consequently made a recommendation for the implementation of a regional butanization strategy to truly promote the use of LPG throughout the region.
  • It is within this context that ECOWAS is seeking to engage a consultant for the development of a regional strategy to promote the use of LPG as cooking energy in the ECOWAS region.
  • The study's overall goal is to develop a regional strategy to popularize the used of LPG as modern cooking fuel in the ECOWAS region in order to contribute to enhancing people's access to modern energy services including modern cooking fuels.
Duties and Responsibilities of the Consultants
The Consultant will be expected to provide the following services:
  • Collect data and present a detailed analysis on the current status of LPG use in the ECOWAS region. The analysis shall review all the value chain of LPG. Identify the achievements and the main challenges and barriers to LPG promotion in the region particularly institutional, regulatory, organizational and infrastructural issues;
  • Identify and assess the major national and regional programmes, projects, actions, initiatives or mechanisms implemented under LPG promotion as household cooking energy in the region;
  • Develop a regional LPG popularization strategy in the ECOWAS based on an objective vision and relevant strategic objectives. This strategy will need to focus on domestic access to LPG and cooking equipment’s but also support from the private sector for the development of the supply and distribution networks.
  • Recommend measures aimed at improving complementarity between the national and regional programmes to enhance the overall political efficiency (programme in environment, ECREEE programme etc.);
  • Identify the region’s priorities and develop an action plan for progressive and inclusive implementation of the LPG popularization strategy in the ECOWAS region.
The study will be carried out by one (1) consultant, responding to the profile below:
  • One (1) specialist in hydrocarbons, hold a Petroleum Engineering Degree or equivalent (Energy, Chemist, Chemist or Petrochemist Engineer etc.), with proven experience in defining strategy and policy in the hydrocarbons sector and in particular the downstream sector.
