Mr. Isaac Owoeye, the Executive Secretary of Osun Board for Technical and Vocational Education, on Thursday, said the state government had concluded arrangements to establish nine vocational centres in the state.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria in Osogbo that the centres were specifically for women and youths to acquire skills.
The centres, he said, would be established across the nine federal constituencies of the state.
Owoeye added that “we have plans to establish one centre in each of the federal constituencies. The project is already contained in the 2014 budget.”
The board scribe said the project would engage the youths and provide employment for women.
The centres would train youths and women in bee-keeping, hat-making, fashion designing, bead-making, auto-electricity, carpentry and joinery.
