Gov. Okowa Presents Starter Packs to STEP Graduates Charges Them To Be Self Reliant(PHOTOS)

Delta state Governor Senator Ifeanyi Okowa has charged the Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) graduates to utilize their training effectively to become better entrepreneurs and employers of labour.

The governor who gave the charge yesterday (18/4/16) during the hand-over of starter parks to 2nd Batch graduates of the 2015 Skills Training and Entrepreneurship programme (STEP) in Asaba explained that they had a responsibility to put into good use the training they have acquired and utilize the starter packs given to empower themselves.

”I must commend you graduates for successfully completing your training and you have all been equipped well enough for you to go into the world and start up your ventures and in no distant time become employers of labour”, he said, adding, ”as a government, it is our joy that youths acquire skills which will make them self-reliant and we are expecting you to grow and become bigger entrepreneurs as you all are now role models for other youths in the state”.

He assured the graduates that some of their complaints on the starter packs would be addressed as soon as possible and urged them to be disciplined and civil in their approach to issues.

Responding on behalf of the graduates, Mr. Austin Ogbechie thanked Governor Okowa for the programme and the starter packs given and assured that they would put to good use the starter packs to become better entrepreneurs.
