The Lagos State Commissioner for Youths and Social Development, Mobolaji Ogunlende, on Tuesday, urged youths to maximise skills in technology to build a brighter future for themselves and society.

The commissioner spoke while unveiling the Lagos State Upskill Programme for youths in the state, launched in conjunction with GFA Technologies and WEMA Bank.

Speaking at the ministry’s conference room at the Secretariat in Alausa, Ikeja, Ogunlende said the skills to be learnt by the youths would provide them with hands-on training in the latest technology and mentorship from experts.

“It is to provide you with hands-on training in the latest technology, mentorship from industry experts, and the opportunity to work on projects that address real-world challenges”, the commissioner said.

He added that beyond the above, the training would also “nurture your creativity, foster your innovation and build your resilience”.

“I urge you to take full advantage of this opportunity. Be curious, proactive and collaborative because the skills you acquire here will be your tools to building a brighter future, not only for yourselves but for the entire community”, Ogunlende said.

As part of efforts to tackle unemployment, the Chairman of the Somolu Local Government Area of Lagos, Abdul-Hamed Salawu, in March, collaborated with Somolu Tech Innovation and a start-up firm, Tech Shepherd, to organise a second edition of the free ICT training for youths in Somolu.

Salawu, represented by the LG’s Supervisor of Youth and Sports, Hector Ayo-Coker, unveiled SKILLSHOP, a four-day intensive tech boot camp catering to over 100 registered youths from across Lagos. The unveiling was done at the council’s secretariat.
