The ongoing skills training centre is another strategic intervention project conceived and implemented by the lawmaker for Owerri Zone, and the chairman Senate Committee on National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure, NASENI, for the purpose of institutionalizing his fundamental policy of human capital development.

He has being adopting various strategies towards meeting that objective, with the two most prominent being construction and equipping of skills training centres and regular training and empowerment of women and youths with necessary start up tools.

It’s also expected that the centre will also go a long way in  making the policy more sustainable, while also  significantly raising quality assurance, as the centre will be fully equipped with the best of equipments in the market, and staffed with topnotch professionals as trainers.
