According to Mr Afolabi Imoukhuede, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Job Creation and Youth Employment, this will boost skills development and employment generation.

“The Federal Government has plans to train 370,000 artisans this year and to employ 500,000 graduates as teachers, because one of our key problems is on education. It has already been decided. We have had a fruitful discussion on it with the Vice President and relevant ministers and we are looking forward to working with the C-STEmp to achieve the goal."
