Edo State Government has Partnered with National Open University Of Nigeria to Boost Vocational Training and Manpower Development in the State
The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has assured the management of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) of the state government’s readiness to partner with the institution to boost training of youths and civil servants.
The governor made the commitment during a courtesy visit by the management team of the Benin Learning Centre of NOUN at Government House in Benin City, Edo State.
He said, “We are in alignment with the objectives of your university and we will collaborate with you as we revamp our vocational education system. Our emphasis is to empower more of our youths with vocational and technical skills so that by the time they leave secondary school, they can set up their own businesses and can then decide to enrol in NOUN to get additional degrees.”
“We are building a civil service training academy and I hope we will collaborate with you and take advantage of the courses you offer for the benefit of our civil servants,” he added.
