The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has established its Skill Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development Center in Delta state bringing the number of the centres in the country to 3.

Speaking at the NYSC skill acquisition centre Ground Breaking/Foundation  laying ceremony on Thursday July 6, 2017 in Ezi, Aniocha North Local Government Area,  Delta State Governor, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa,  represented by  the Chief Job Creation Officer, stated  that skill acquisition and entrepreneurial programmes were the panacea in tackling the current youth unemployment problem in the country.

He averred that the skill acquisition programmes would solve the unemployment problems facing the youths in the country and help them acquire skills that would make them self reliant stressing that  the NYSC Skill Acquisition Centre would better the lives of the youths in the state and  South-South Zone and compliment government’s effort and drive to empower youths because of its multiplier effect .

“This scheme is timely because we need wealth and job creators in this era of limited employment opportunity, this initiative is in line with our administration’s job creation scheme, Skill Training  And Entrepreneurial Programme (STEP) and Youth Agriculture Entrepreneurial Programme (YAGEP).”

“It is my hope that this NYSC skill acquisition centre will turn out thousands of youths that will be business leaders and managers, it has a multiplier effect because those that will be trained will in turn employ more people to work for them after they have been established”, he said adding that “you have my assurance that my administration will give this centre the needed support to make it succeed.”

The Director General of NYSC, Brigadier General, Sule Zakara Kazare, said that the project was informed by the desire to create jobs for the youths in the zone explaining that three of such projects have been awarded  in the country, viz south-west, (Ekiti State) south-south (Delta State) and the Northern part (Gombe State).
