Chinwe Onuigbo, Awka
The Governor of Anambra state, Chukwuma has commissioned the Centre for Skills Development and Information Communications Technology (ICT)
The centre was built by the All progressives Grand Alliance ( APGA) Candidate for the Anambra Central Senatorial zone in the 2023 general election, Ferdinand Nwankwo.
The capacity of the centre is for 250 computers equipped with 150 fully installed and functional systems expected to provide employment for the youths of the benefactor’s constituency and by extension Anambra Central Senatorial zone.
The skills development and acquisition section of the building has 9 units ranging from cosmetology, food processing, woodwork, fashion and design, hairdressing, confectionaries, photography, security system and surveillance as well as interior decoration and civil finishing.
Governor Soludo eulogized Nwankwo for promoting human capital development and jobs for the teeming youths of his constituency and the state at large.
He called on other well-meaning individuals in the state to emulate the kind gesture of the legislature.
According to the benefactor and member representing Njikoka, Anaocha and Dunukofia at the Federal House of Representatives, the ICT Hub is fully equipped with modern facilities for ICT experience and trainings for skills development and acquisition.
“In an age where the world is becoming a global village, every effort must be made to provide ICT facility for our people, that is why I took up the construction and equipping of this project as my widow’s mite in skills development, acquisition and ICT for my constituency
“The site, physical and other structures were wholly funded by me while the present set of 150 computers, the furniture, the bus and the standby generator were sourced from my zonal intervention funds
“This is also an opportunity to plead with the number one citizen of the state to consider partnering with the centre and use it for government ICT trainings, CBT examinations, skill development, acquisition and any other activity deemed appropriate,” he said.
Nwankwo solicited the people’s support in his quest to represent them as a Senator for Anambra Central on the platform of APGA.
