Mr Kanayo Chukwuemezie, the President, Africa Arts and Cultural Heritage Association, Abuja (AACHA), said the association would train students in indigenous arts and crafts making during the long vocation. Chukwuemezie told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja that the interest being shown in arts and crafts by youths was very encouraging.

According to him, the association will train youths and students to make indigenous arts and crafts in some schools in the FCT.

“Some schools and youth associations have indicated interest in the training and we are putting finishing touches to it.

“After the training, successful participants will be awarded certificates,'' he said.

He said that the association had trained youths in indigenous arts and crafts in the past, adding that the recent interest indicated by schools and youths was encouraging.

“The knowledge of arts and crafts making should be imparted into the future generation of this country as it will help to provide jobs,'' he said.

The AACHA president called on government and other stakeholders in the tourism industry to support the association in its quest to pass on this knowledge to the next generation.
