Capacity Building: Again, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi Reaches out to Constituents; Commences ICT Training for Youths in lbadan North Federal Constituency
Member of the House of Representatives, representing Ibadan North Federal Constituency, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi popularly referred to as Jagaban has for the umpteenth time this year concluded plans for another training and empowerment programme.
This new capacity building programme is focused on Information and Communications Technology (ICT) training for youths in his constituency. This, Hon. Olaide Akinremi believes is also one of the major ways in which his constituents can achieve financial independence and self sustainability, considering the many opportunities that abound around ICT.
This training is to be carried out in conjunction with the National Board for Technology Incubation, at the Technology Incubation Centre, Samonda Ibadan, starting from Friday 3rd December 2021, and teaching areas will cover aspects on Web Development, Emerging Technologies like 5G and Management Information System (MIS) through Microsoft office among others.
According to a statement from Hon. Olaide Akinremi who explained the reason for this training, he stated that, “As we all know, the world is now a global village, with people interconnecting from one end of the world to the other through any internet enabled device, and we can see the numerous business opportunities that have sprung up as a result of Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Even with only a smart phone, we have seen youths make legitimate living for themselves”.
“From youths who have developed skills as multimedia developers (graphic designers, picture & video editors), to website designers, data analysts & programmers, software analysts & developers, social media marketers, business centre owners among several others, the opportunities ICT provides are numerous and extensive, and learning any of these skills in this internet age gives chances for individual survival of youths”, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi further stated.
We recall that in this year 2021, Hon. Prince Olaide Akinremi (Jagaban) has facilitated several trainings for women and youths in Ibadan North Federal Constituency, and has equally empowered them with start up kits, as well as cash to enable easy business take off.
