Recognizing the need to equip Nigeria’s youth not just with requisite digital skills, the Ministry is actively seeking to create entrepreneurship and employment opportunities such that the youth that are trained are able to transfer skills acquired into gainful employment and/or start businesses that create wealth for themselves and others in the community.

  1. By 2030, the youth will be Nigeria’s greatest asset not oil
  2. Huge population - at least a youth in every home
  3. A resource to be harnessed
  4. Many are idle - no jobs, no opportunities, no training, no new skills
  5. To take off crime and drug addiction
  6. A wise investment
