The organization organized a two-week free skills acquisition for the youths in event planning and decoration, make-up and gele tying, catering, photography, hairdressing, tailoring, etc.
Hon. Ganiyu Johnson, who was represented by his Personal Assistant, Hon. Ismail Aregbesola, said he was proud of the organisation for empowering the youths as he promised to keep supporting the organization and others who embark on youth empowerment.
The Ejigbo council chairman, represented by his Senior Adviser on Special Duties, Hon. Segun Oyegbenle, urged the beneficiaries to keep up what they’ve learnt during the training and make use of the knowledge to their advantage, promising to render his own support.
Alhaji Kasumu encouraged the trained youths to be serious with the knowledge acquired from the two weeks free training, encouraging them to build on the skills acquired to make impact in their different fields.
Meanwhile, Ejigbo APC Youth Leader, Hon. Olajide Ogunmefun promised to empower the best students in all the categories of the skills acquisition programme financially.
The CEO, A2 Signature, Miss Iyanu Adefioye, said the organisation is committed to helping humanity and especially empowering the youths to make impact in the community.
Adefioye charged the graduating students to also go out and help others with their knowledge and to make good means for themselves too as they give back to the community.
One of the graduating students, Ruth Ogbomo, who was trained in fashion designing said she was very elated, impressed and inspired by the training.
“I’ve been looking for the opportunity for a long time and missed some in the past but when this came I quickly got the form. I must say I’m really inspired and I will take it far because I’m going to put into practice all I’ve learnt as I wish to go into fashion full time with this training… really challenged by the CEO, Miss Iyanu Adefioye. She is a pace setter, she has been making impact in the lives of the youths, I really want to appreciate her for that,” she commented.
