By Vannessa Eddie


The lawmaker representing Obio/Akpor Federal Constituency, Hon. Kingsley Ogundu Chinda, has trained and empowered 250 persons from his constituency on different skills.

The Federal lawmaker applauded the trainees for devoting their time to learn, pointing out that the programme has proved that Nigerian youths are not lazy at all, rather they lack the opportunities and right environment.

He further urged them to utilize the opportunity judiciously and also take steps to teach others so that those around them would benefit from their knowledge while advising them not to be discouraged by the economic situation in the country.

“Continue to pray to God, continue to dream and to work towards your dreams, be consistent and persistent in everything you do in life and you will surely get success”, he prayed.

He commended the organizers, Switz Creations, for their time and effort in the training programme, assuring that the exercise will continue in the remaining parts of the constituency and with more skills added to it.

His Royal Majesty, Eze Amb. Sunny Weli Chukwu JP, Paramount ruler of Elelenwo Etor, thanked the lawmaker for putting up such a wonderful programme to the people and urged the participants to be steadfast in their various skills.

On his part, Hon Echendu Weli, Councillor representing Ward 5 in Obio/Akpor Legislative Assembly, commended Rep Chinda for his continued support and programmes to assist his people and expressed happiness over the number of graduands.

Highlight of the event was the presentation of certificates and starter packs to the best eleven students in all the departments.

The skills include tailoring, ankara making, hat making, bead making, wig making, interior and exterior decorations, hair barbing and catering services. Others are make-up artistry, handset repairs, cosmetology, allied products and leather footwears.
