By Adedotun Ajayi

In its determination to promote the acquisition of technical skills by young people and entrepreneurship development, the Ondo State Government will this year build two new model technical schools in the State.

Governor Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, disclosed this at the Ondo State Entrepreneurship Summit, with the theme: Innovative Entrepreneurship for Sustainable Economy, held in Akure, the State capital.

The Governor said current global economic realities have made it necessary for young people to gain technical skills to become solution providers and entrepreneurs.

Governor Aiyedatiwa said the 2024 budget has made provisions for the establishment of the two new model technical colleges, in addition to the existing ones across the State which will also receive attention.

Addressing thousands of youths that gathered at the summit, the Governor said: “The current economy in our country demands the urgent intervention of innovative entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs have always been at the forefront of transformative change; creating jobs, driving productivity, and catalyzing economic development.

“Our administration in Ondo State since assumption of office has placed emphasis on fostering an enabling environment for entrepreneurship and innovation to thrive. We recognise that government alone cannot drive economic growth; rather, it is through collaboration with the private sector and the empowerment of our youths that we can unlock the full potential of our economy.”

The Governor commended the Ondo State Entrepreneurship Agency (ONDEA) for being at the forefront of driving an all-inclusive and vibrant economic development with impactful initiatives that have transformed countless lives and businesses through the fostering of a culture of innovation and empowerment.
