BENIN—WIFE of Edo State governor, Mrs Iara Oshiomhole, has concluded the training of 160 Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, on Information and Communications Technology, ICT, food processing, creative arts and fisheries.
The training was undertaken under Mrs Oshiomhole’s pet project, “We Care Trust” to prepare the IDPs for productive life after camp.
Speaking at the closing ceremony, where certificates were issued to participants of the programme, Mrs. Oshiomhole said she was impressed by the performance and speedy learning of the participants.
According to her, “We came here 10 days ago to do the flag- off, and we returned a few days after to catch up with the students to see how they were doing. To my surprise, they were doing extremely well.
“Of course, when you have a wonderful training, you cannot do anything less than extremely well. So, I thank the facilitators for the training and I thank the students for dedicating time to the training and giving their best, because from what they were able to produce after the training, I know for sure that the best was given. I am extremely proud.”
On her part, Special Adviser to the Governor on Special Duties, Hajia Mamunat Momodu, thanked the Edo Governor’s wife for putting up a training programme for the IDPs.
