Honourable Hilary Bisong, Member Representing Boki II state Constituency at the Cross River State House of Assembly facilitates Skill Acquisition Training for his constituents.
Over 60 unemployed youths drawn from all the political wards in Boki II state constituency are currently undergoing job acquisition training programme at the Boki Comprehensive Secondary School, Okundi.
The two weeks training, which is in partnership with the National Directorate of Employment, NDE will impact skills such as cosmetology, baking, POP fixing, tiles fixing, soap and liquid hand wash production amongst others.
After the training, the NDE will facilitate a soft grant for the beneficiaries to start up their own businesses.
Speaking, Hon. Hilary Bisong said that the initiative was to equip unemployed youths from his constituency with the required skills needed in today’s job market.
According to him, the skills will help the beneficiaries to be self reliant while empowering others when they expand their businesses.
He urged the participants to make judicious use of the training, adding that more youths will also benefit from the next phase of the training.
It would be recalled that a similar training took place in 2017 were over 80 Boki II state constituents benefited from the kind gesture of Hon. Bisong.
The desire of this pragmatic, proactive, generous and industrous mind lawmaker is “teaching members of his constituency how to fish”.
Kudos to Hon Hilary Bisong.
