GOVERNOR Emmanuel Uduaghan has described skill acquisition as one of the best ways to get the unemployed youths gainfully engaged. He said that his administration was working towards encouraging youths to acquire vocational skills and decried situation where Nigerians leaves artisan-ship for foreigners and go around complaining about lack of empowerment. The Governor who was speaking yesterday when notable film producer and director, Jeta Amata paid him a courtesy call in Government House, Asaba, stated that there are ready jobs for artisans in the country. “There are jobs for artisans, yet we have a lot of our youths who are complaining of joblessness,” the Governor said, adding: “We have a lot of youths who can be trained and will contribute towards the development of the society.” He observed that the ‘Niger-Delta Legacy Project’ which is being sponsored by the government of the United States of America was a worthy project as it would empower youths and give them a voice to express their views without being violent. While promising to assist the organisers of the reality show, Governor Uduaghan expressed joy that Delta State has become a haven for the film industry and commended the organisers of the Legacy Project for commencing their programme in the state. Earlier, Mr. Amata had told the Governor that the US Department of State approved the reality show which will entail visiting communities in the Niger Delta where seven persons will be selected from each of the communities, trained and empowered to tell their stories through motion pictures. “We are doing what is called, ‘Done in the Creek’ which is a reality TV show on how to stop violence in the Niger Delta,” Mr Amata said.
