Youth New Club trains over 500 in entrepreneurial skills

By Cynthia Alo

A Non- Governmental Organisation, Youth New Club, YNC, recently trained over 500 Nigerians during her six months skills acquisition and empowerment programme which covers catering, computer literacy, bakery, headtie skills, fascinator- making among others in Lagos.

The group, with its training centre in Oshodi area, said it has resolved to eradicate poverty with this measure by covering nooks and crannies of Lagos and beyond. President and Founder of the organisation, Mr. Temiola Ireti-Ayo stated this during the graduating ceremony of the beneficiaries comprising students, single and married men and women. He said:

“We are working on empowering more Nigerians in the state by extending the programme to Alimosho, Orile, Agege and subsequently, Ibadan area. This move will not only encourage youths to be self- employed but also reduce poverty in the society to a minimum.”

Ireti-Ayo also announced a contract deal for the graduating members of the Catering department while assuring all the beneficiaries of continuity in their acquired profession with easy access to loan from LSETF.

“With a soft loan of N250,000 as start-up capital from the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund, LSETF, which they are expected to pay in one year, there will be less unemployment in the country.

“However, if they are able to invest the money wisely, five years from now, they should be well established to also engage and train more youths in the country,” he added.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Angela Esekhile, told Vanguard that she plans to extend her acquired catering skills to others as soon as possible.

She said: “I am delighted to be part of this programme, the six months journey was a wonderful one. I plan to also contribute to this foundation laid by training other youths.”

Nigeria: Some Youths threaten to wreck infrastructure in Lagos, Abuja if Buhari refuses to sign Electoral Act

By Emma Amaize

THE 21st Century Youths of Nigeria for Restructuring on Friday warned it will commence devastation of critical infrastructure, beginning with Lagos and Abuja if at the end of its seven-day mourning for Nigerians soldiers slain by Boko Haram, President Muhammadu Buhari did not sign the Electoral Act passed by the National Assembly into law.

The group, which declared seven-day memorial for over 70 Nigerian soldiers, killed by Boko Haram, on Monday, urged President Buhari to sign the Electoral Act into law “as a mark of honour to the slain soldiers and democracy before the expiration of our mourning period.”

Leader of the group with membership drawn from nine states, self-styled “General” Izon Ebi, in a statement, warned, “We want to use this medium to remind the Federal Government that this time around, we are not going to destroy our oil infrastructure, but critical infrastructure built with our oil proceeds in Abuja and Lagos.”

Boasting that it has “upgraded from analogue to digital to prove its point that enough is enough,” the group asserted, “If after our seven days of mourning, the Electoral Act is not passed into law, that means we have no choice but to direct our members across the nine states to start destroying critical infrastructure, starting from Abuja and Lagos.”

The group said it was obvious that “violence is what this government understands to do the right thing,” adding, “We are in the 21st century and have come of age to do the right thing.”

Its words: “We, therefore, call on the international community to prevail on the Nigerian government to pass the Electoral Act into law because doing so is like building the right foundation for a free, fair transparent and credible election.”
