Ogun Technical Education Board Trains 20,000 Youths In Vocational Trades

Ogun State Technical Vocational Education Board, (OGSTVEB) says it has trained 20,000 youths in various vocations, ranging from Solar installation, Plumbing, Fashion Designing, Hair Dressing among others as part of measures
to reduce unemployment in the state 

The Special Adviser on Technical  Education, Prof. Joseph Odemuyiwa made this known on Friday during a media chat in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, saying the beneficiaries were captured since the inception of the present administration.

Odemuyiwa explained that the Board through a partnership with the Federal Government, World Bank, German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ),  and other industries was able to train over 200 technical teachers for an effective and efficient impartation of knowledge to the trainees.

 "What Governor Dapo Abiodun has done in four years, no government was able to achieve in eight years. He was able to touch all aspects, including Technical Vocational Education Training (TVET). We have been able to rehabilitate eight technical colleges across the State to a world-class standard "he stated

The Governor's aide pointed out that the present administration's focus on technical education was a deliberate attempt at solving unemployment among the young people, adding that workshops would be organised to train learners in technical colleges to enhance vocational skills.
