The Accord Party governorship candidate in Ekiti State, Mr Kole Ajayi has promised to tackle unemployment through a holistic policy.
Addressing members of the Nigerian Youth Movement, Ekiti State chapter over the weekend, the gubernatorial candidate stated that the educational curriculum will focus on technical vocation and skill acquisition to complement the employment policy of his administration.
He explained that Vocational Technical Education will be given a boost while the already existing technical colleges will be upgraded with modern equipment. He said that “technical education shall be free in Ekiti.”
In addition, he said his government will establish skill acquisition centres in each local government for the benefit of people including graduates that are interested in skills.
According to him, youths interested in skill acquisition and vocation will be sponsored to sophisticated companies outside the state for better exposure while a legislation will be made to ensure that all labour and skilled works within Ekiti State both in public and private sector shall be indigenised.
