The Delta State Commissioner for Youth Development, Comrade Ifeanyi Egwunyenga, has affirmed that diligence, commitment and competence are the driving force that births persistence to success.
The commissioner made this affirmation, when he paid an unscheduled visit to beneficiaries of the Rural Youth Skill Acquisition (RYSA) program, during their Community Business School (CBS) sessions in Ughelli North and Warri South Local Government Areas.
Comrade Egwunyenga urged them to build a bond with their trainers, for purpose of the future and advised them to shun being a parasite to them. He charged them to be disciplined, develop self motivation to attain greater heights in their choices of vocation.
He further stated that “Report was brought to his table that most trainees from the Ughelli axis are not taking their training seriously but in my quest for more information I decided to pay an unscheduled visit during the business class session”.
He then expressed satisfaction at their conduct and encouraged them to report any trainer who is not in sync with the ministry’s policies.
He stated that the essence of the community business school is for them to be properly groomed in business ethics and charged them to leverage on the social media platform to expand their business and as well meet up with the demands of the 21st century.
In his remarks, the acting Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Mr Dioru Sheho, encouraged trainees to be focused on their training and tasked trainers to be thorough during the course of the program.
Among those who accompanied the Youth Commissioner is the Director Youth Enterprise Promotion and Investment Mr. Efe Emuakpeje as well as the Special Assistants to the Governor on Youth Development, Mr Alex Idu, Mrs Blessing Overare-Orienvwe
