The trainees of the Delta Indigenous Fabric (Akwa-Ocha/Akwa-Oma) have been charged to take their training seriously in order to be independent, self-reliant and employers of labour in the production of the local fabrics.

The Delta State Commissioner for Youth Development, Comrade Ifeanyi Egwunyenga, gave the charge during the flag-off ceremony of the Delta Fabric (Akwa-Ocha/Akwa-Oma) training programme at Accelerated Delta Innovation Leather Work factory, Issele-Uku in Aniocha North Local Government Area.

Egwunyenga congratulated the trainees on their success at the various stages of the screening exercise before their successful enrolment into the programme.

He said the programme was designed to give requisite/modern skills to trainees in the production of the Delta Fabric.

Egwunyenga said this was in pursuit of the Stronger Delta Vision, which was Governor Ifeanyi Okowa’s earnest desire to create youth entrepreneurs through economics reform, strategic job and wealth creation programme for youths in the state.

In his word, “we are here because there is a revolution that is taking place in Delta State. And the revolution is geared towards ensuring that we do not lose our cultural space heritage as Deltans.

On his part, the Chief Job and Wealth Creation Officer, Prof. Eric Eboh, advised the trainees to embrace the youth investment programme and acquire skills that would change their lives.

He stressed that the state government’s idea of initiating the Job Creation Scheme was to create a lasting legacy of a new generation of youth entrepreneurs, who were well motivated, inspired, skilled and adequately enabled to become self-employed and business owners.
