A Nigeria-based non-governmental organisation, Initiative for Youth Awareness on Migration, Immigration Development and Reintegration (IYAMIDR), has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Genoa and Genova Consultant Training Institute, to train Nigerian youths on various vocations.

The aim of the scheme is to enhance the capacity of Nigerian youth with viable skills to boost the Nigerian economy in various sectors, thereby curbing unemployment and youth restiveness.

The Executive Director of IYAMIDR-Nigeria and facilitator, Comrade Solomon Okoduwa, and representatives of Genoa and Genova Consultants, Dr Antonio Lovecchio and Maduka put pen to paper to seal the training agreement.

Okoduwa who spoke after signing the MoU, said the engagement serves as intervention for manpower development for oil and gas related sector, adding that over 200 youths were expected to undergo the training.

“We want to use this opportunity to specially thank Ambassador Mfawa Abam of the Nigeria Embassy Rome for his fatherly and patriotic support towards this project.

“We most sincerely thank the Italian Ambassador in Abuja and most remarkably the great cooperation shown to us by the Consular General of Italian Embassy, Dr Bovi, we thank you very much for your kind assistance in realising this project.

“This project is geared towards the Renewed Hope agenda of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in building confidence in the Nigerian youth and making Nigeria great again,” Okoduwa stated.

He added that Nigerian youths under the programme will acquire training in welding/fabrication, ship dockyard, Yacht maintenance, rail track installation and maintenance, among others.

Dr Antonio Lovecchio in his remarks, said the project will help to redirect the future of Nigerian youths.
