Stakeholders at the two-day workshop on the Skills Initiative for Africa programme have advised NEPAD to focus on addressing skill gap by implementing agriculture projects in the country.
The stakeholders gave the recommendation in a communiqué read by Dr Iyk Oji, Special Adviser to the National Coordinator of NEPAD Nigeria, Mrs Gloria Akobundu, at the end of the workshop on Wednesday in Abuja.
They urged the initiative to address skill gaps in the area of agro-processing, poultry production and agriculture value chain in line with the current administration’s change agenda on economic diversification.
They said it should also address skill gap in vocational skills like welding and mechanics, among others, in the six geo-political zones. See more
