The Sokodo state government is conducting a skill acquisition program for unemployed youth. Under the second phase of this program, it will impart training to 9,070 unemployed youths in computer application, local textile dyeing known as tie and dye, sewing and knitting, said Mr. Alhaji Ahmad Aliyu, the Commissioner for Social Welfare.

Trainees would also get knowledge in the areas including electrical, electronics, vulcanizing, welding, carpentry, building and driving/auto mechanics. The youth training centre in Sodoko will have 250 candidates from each of the 23 local government areas and 3,320 from Sodoko metropolis.

Each trainee in the centre would receive a monthly allowance of N5000, only if he attends the program at least for 17 days per month. The program that is being run by a Gusau-based Consulting firm is non-political.

Here the trainees would be equipped with free tools and provided funds at the end of the training in order to assist them to start their own businesses. Reducing poverty and the unemployment rate in the state are the key objectives of this training program, informed the Commissioner.

It also aims at reducing youth restiveness and making them constructive for the benefit of society as well as for themselves. In first phase, the program benefited around 1,750 youths that cost the government more than N98 million.
