Wilkie tasks Delta youths on productive ventures

By Emma Arubi
WARRI—YOUTHS in Delta State have been charged to engage themselves only in productive ventures that would further their lives.

They were also asked to shun acts capable of damaging their lives and soil the names of their families.
Managing Director of Yengho Ventures, Mr. Jefferson Wilkie, gave this advice, at the closing ceremony of the 3-month sole sponsored computer training programme for 25 youths in Warri.

Wilkie said the training programme, which cost his company millions of naira, was his contribution towards ploughing back some of the company’s gains in its area of operations as well as supporting the human capital development programme of Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan.

He charged other community leaders to emulate him in giving life-sustaining opportunities to restive youths in the area, and  gave out three complete computer sets with accessories and cash gift for the best graduating students.

He charged them to be good ambassadors of Yengho Ventures, promising to continue with the good gesture for the betterment of mankind.

Mr. Tony Omabuwa of M & T Consult, the facilitator of the training programmes, applauded Yengho Ventures for the courage and magnanimity in putting the three months computer training event together.

He said the efforts, not supported by any multinational oil company in the Niger Delta, were quite commendable steps in the right direction.
