The Senator representing Delta North senatorial district at the upper chamber of the National Assembly, Ned Nwoko, has expressed concern about the future of Nigerian youths.
The lawmaker made the comment when he paid an unscheduled visit to Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Center during his assessment tour in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
He promised to sponsor more youths in skills acquisition.
He opined that skills acquired would provide the necessary training for youths to empower themselves and also become self-reliant.
While promising to assist in funding of the Skills Acquisition Centre so that more Nigerian youths, especially those from Delta North, can benefit from it, he expressed satisfaction with the management of the skill centre.
“I have gone round the skill acquisition center and I’m satisfied with what I saw on ground and the management of the center.
“Apart from the fact that the management of Ned/GKE Skills Acquisition Centre worked for my election as a senator, I am happy that you all are doing things to assist yourselves vocationally.
“I’m more concerned about the future of Nigerian youths and citizens generally; the skills acquisition centre will provide the necessary training for them and make them economically empowered and self-reliant to themselves,” he said.
