A SPEECH DELIVERED BY THE EXECUTIVE SECRETARY OF LASTVEB MRS. OMOLARA EROGBOGBO DURING THE INTERACTIVE SESSION WITH THE MEDIA ON ADVOCACY FOR TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN LAGOS STATE ON THURSDAY 7TH OF JUNE, 2018

 

PROTOCOL

The economic progress of the nation greatly depends solely on its industrialization. Lagos State is no doubt economic hub of the country gradually transiting into a Smart City. Achieving this vision is the provision of high quality technical skill to Nigerian youth in diverse areas of Lagos State economy. Lagos State is therefore, placed in the front burner to provide the much needed competent and skilled youths.

Embracing technical and vocational skills acquisition by young people of Lagos will address the skill gap in the economy as well as provide means for young people to be self-relevant.

The training offered through LASTVEB has ensured adequate skills training, empowering of young people, preparing them for the world of work, providing job opportunities and keeping the youth of Lagos off-the-streets.

GENTLEMEN OF THE PRESS

This is yet another opportunity for this Government to demonstrate its renewed commitment to further revamp Technical and Vocational Education in the State. We have chosen to champion Technical and Vocational Education as it focuses specifically on providing job-related skills for students whilst also preparing them to be positioned to develop new enterprises.

Also, the Government is proposing additional Technical Colleges in the State.

In this wise, there is need to put in an effective machinery to propagate and promote the vision and aspiration of the Government and His Excellency, the Executive Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode through effective Public relations that includes sensitization of the citizenry. Let me emphasize that Technical Education is not for push-over or drop-out,  apart from the technical Skills, the students are also required to learn Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English and Mathematics as a prerequisite for NABTEB final examination.

I call on parents/guardians and secondary school leavers to embrace Technical Education which is free to learn thereby allowing them to learn a trade and get skilled up for the future because Technical Education is the bed rock of any developing Economy like Lagos and Nigeria at large.

After going through Technical Colleges, the student s can go to University or become Entrepreneur.

Thank you and God bless.
