Onuesoke urges politicians to support Okowa’s SMART agenda

A Chieftain of the Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Sunny Onuesoke has appealed to politicians  to  support the state governor, Senator Ifeanyi  Okowa’s  SMART agenda  in creating entrepreneurs and industrialists.

Onuesoke who gave the advise  as key speaker during the flag-off   NPDC OML 30 skill acquisition training  programme organized by NPDC for oil producing communities in Delta State  said politicians  should think of supporting the  SMART agenda  of Okowa’s government by embarking on establishment of small scale industries for  youths  instead of  embarking on policy of empowerment of  giving youths cash, vehicles and monthly salaries  they  did not work for.

Onuesoke equally advised on the need of developing the profession  artisans who specialized as mechanics, carpenters and tailors to modern trend so that they can be useful to themselves and the society in course of plying their trade.

According to him, “There is also the need to look inward into those mechanics, carpenters, tailors and other artisan who do not have the right skills in their earlier training  that suit  modern trend.  They could be engaged in full time training for say a year to rebrand  their skill and make them useful  to the modern day trend of their profession.  They can repair modern  luxurious cars, create modern furniture  and design modern outfits for government, corporate organizations and individual instead of roaming the street and becoming nuisance to the society.”
