Edo State Government in partnership with Microsoft and Tech4Dev firm is set to train at least 50,000 youths on digital literacy skills.


The initiative is aimed at equipping the youths with the skills to exploit the windows of opportunities in the country’s evolving technology eco-system, as well as to deliver on the campaign promise of the state governor, Godwin Obaseki for 200,000 jobs.

The training, according to the organisers, is being coordinated by the Edo- Jobs initiative and skills development platform, which will through its portal, supply participants with necessary logistics for the programme.


Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Job Creation, Mrs. Ukinebo Dare, disclosed this in a statement in Benin, the state capital.


Ukinebo said that of the 50,000 participants in the programme, 500 would be trained as master trainers, who will facilitate the stepdown training for others.


According to her, “we have reached advanced stage of preparations for the training programme that will commence in Edo State. Microsoft and Tech4Dev plan to train about 500,000 persons across Nigeria.


Of that number, 50,000 people will be trained in Edo State. While the two firms are to conduct the training, we are here in the state to coordinate logistics and other support structures to make the training possible.”
