Abiola Makinde, Member House of Representatives, representing Ondo East and West Constituency, in a two-day event held on Wednesday 17th, November and Thursday, 18th November, 2021, in the heart of town, which drew participants from the nook and crannies of Ondo ensured that the art of several crafts including wig-making, make-over, event planning, soap-making and interior decoration amongst others was imparted into them. This program, just as one of his many programs which showcases WEALTH agenda campaign mantra,is aimed at alleviating and addressing the issue of unemployment, which is one of the greatest challenge we face as a Nation today.In the face of the reality of a harsh economy and rising unemployment, trainings such as this, have become critically important as they serve as a form of job creation on their own and would surely leave an indelible mark on those who were opportuned to be partakers. Hon Makinde speaking at the conclusion of the event highlighted how important the training was especially for people seeking self-sustainance and was looking to get something started in their own little capacity. In his words, "This is not the first time we have trained youths, it was an integral part of our campaign and I am glad that training is not left out of what we constantly do for our people." "Unemployment is one of the encumbrances that has bedeviled our youths for so long, it's high time we start looking away from white collar jobs and delve into alternatives such as agriculture and training for specialised crafts like this if sustainance must be achieved." Hon Makinde also thanked his consistuents for making themselves available and has hinted that more programs are in the offing.
