“The training scheme will equip the women and youths with an aggressive, up-to-date, marketable vocational and technical skills, to enable them to be self-reliant, self-actualised and self-fulfilled,” Abiola said.
She said that participants were expected to be presented with certificates and starting kits at the end of the programme. (NAN)
