Nigerian Breweries Partners ITF To Empower 1,000 Youth


Nigerian Breweries Plc has partnered with the Industrial Trust Fund (ITF) to empower 1000 youths and women across the country on skills development.

According to Nigerian Breweries, beneficiaries of the empowerment were trained in a wide range of skill areas, including solar panel installations, tailoring, leather works, hairdressing, Phone repair, cap and wig making, and electrical installation. They were drawn from 24 states and the Federal Capital Territory.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony held in Lagos last Friday, the Managing Director of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Hans Essaadi, said that the initiative has not only trained individuals but laid a solid foundation for a more skilled and competitive workforce.

In his remarks on the partnership, the Director General of Industrial Training Fund, Dr. Afiz Ogun, noted that the partnership between the agency and Nigerian Breweries Plc in the training of the youth and women is one of the numerous efforts of ITF in supporting the growth and development of skills training for impactful skills intervention in various sectors of the economy.

Dr. Afiz advising the beneficiaries of the empowerment said, “I want to use this opportunity to urge participants to resolve to utilise the opportunity provided by the training to make a decent living for themselves and their families and be good ambassadors of ITF and NB Plc. Do not sell start-up packs as it is your ticket to the world and opportunity to contribute meaningfully to the Nigerian economy.”

Speaking further on the partnership, the Corporate Affairs Director of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Sade Morgan, explained that the decision to partner with ITF was driven by the desire to complement the government’s efforts in bridging the unemployment gap caused by the absence of technical skills.
