An indication has emerged that thousands of Nigerian youths will be empowered in a bid to stem the tide of unemployment before the end of this year. This empowerment is being worked out by London based SPAC Nation.
This was disclosed by the Head of SPAC Nation, Pastor Tobi Adegboyega during a Radio Nigeria Network programme aired on all FRCN stations.
Pastor Tobi Adegboyega who is backed by his dynamic team of young Pastors declared that states and the federal government cannot be left alone to meet the employment needs of Nigerian youths in view of the economic travails of the country.
The 38-year old said he and his team have replicated this feat in the United Kingdom where many jobless youths have been gainfully empowered and restored both socially and economically. He said that some of the people empowered by his team in SPAC Nation have become employers of labour, adding “this is a testimony which God has given us at SPAC Nation.”
“We also want to support young people with innovations, young people who have ideas to bring solutions to issues within their local areas. We want to support them with mentorship and finance where necessary.”
He further said that SPAC Nation intends to form a partnership with London schools to give scholarships and vocational training.
“There are people we can sponsor for vocational trainings, and some others for basic trainings. We can enrol people for training in first class institutions like Oxford and Cambridge universities, and we will do this for those who show themselves as deserving.”
The young Pastor said that philanthropic organizations in the United Kingdom and captains of industries who have keyed in into the programmes of the Church have agreed to provide funds for the lofty projects of the Church for the Nigerian youths.
The Pastor who explained that his team was not coming to share money for the jobless youths but to empower them with job to make them economically self dependent .
He was optimistic that the government would provide the enablement for the project to succeed.
