N-Power Build launches in Enugu with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Attendance



A few days ago, N-Power Build was formally launched. It was absolutely surreal.

So the N-Power Build programme is a sub-programme of N-Power and it is focused on building a crop of highly competent and skilled workforce of technicians, artisans and service professionals in the Nigerian Automobile and Construction Sectors. It is a vocational and apprenticeship programme. The programme partners with CORBON and NADDC.

At the launch, it was awesome to see the beneficiaries in their overalls, guests, Ministers, Governor of Enugu State and of course, the Vice-President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.

The VP made a profound statement – ‘’We need to allow the employers (who are the ultimate users of our education and training system outputs) to lead the way through the various sector skill councils and together work towards a common goal of skilling our teeming youths with relevant and appropriate skill competencies for the enormous infrastructure projects we have embarked upon’’

The Programme Head who is also the SSA to President on Job Creation, Afolabi Imoukhuede stated that across the world, apprenticeships are seen as an important and powerful way of developing high-quality workforce especially when they are linked to direct occupational needs of the various sectors and industries.

We are certain that the impact of N-Power Build will resonate in our service industry and move Nigeria steps ahead.

      I am happy you mentioned honest and competency. I used to give a —- about all this stuff. But the level of unnecessary shenanigans, dishonesty and interest on being bad turned me off. I hope we as a people recognize the importance of being good to people and at what we do. Building a good structure or doing a good service that is memorable. Structures built in the 50’s are worn down but standing, same for 60s, 70s, and 80s. But many structures built nowadays will loose in a boxing training bout to anyone. 504 was used for 30 years but honda can’t last 10 years.
