Edo govt to partner ITF on human capacity development
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has said his government will partner the Industrial Training Fund, ITF, to develop the capacity of workers in the state.
The governor, who spoke while receiving the management of ITF in Benin, noted that the greatest asset any country could be proud of was its people not the machinery or infrastructure.
He said his administration was committed to the development of human capacity and skills which could be exported to other parts of the world.
“We are pleased to partner with you and we see you as a veritable tool to develop our human capacity. We seek inner capacity building of our people in the civil, public and private services. The civil service is even more urgent. Let us see how you can help us rebuild the core of our training structure. Our goal is to train young people who we call ‘Agro-preneurs’ and support them with credit,” he said.
Earlier, the Director General of ITF, Mr Joseph Ari, said the visit was to intimate the governor of ITF’s Operation reach out programmes geared towards human capacity development in the country.
