The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) plans to construct six mega skills centres for its Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development (SAED).
Director General of the scheme Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure said on Thursday that the centres will be constructed in the six geo-political zones in Nigeria.
Kazaure was speaking at the inaugural edition of the NYSC SAED festival in Abuja.
The NYSC boss explained that the centres in the South-West (Ekiti) and North East (Gombe) States are already at completion stages.
“We are also currently making efforts to advance the gains of the SAED programme through the establishment of mega skills centres in the six-geo-political zones of the country,” he said.
“I am pleased to inform you that the ones for the South-West and North-East are at completion stage in Ekiti and Gombe states.”
Meanwhile, according to the NYSC DG, construction work has commenced in the South-South centre located at Ezi, in Delta state.
“When completed, the centres will make the post-camp training of corps members more functional.”
