“It’s the vision of Gov Willie Obiano of Anambra State to raise the pool of young entrepreneurs that would dictate the pace in the digital world. So, through special Digipreneur programs like this, we guide the young people on self-development; give them the right orientation before arming them with desirable digital skills.
“Chief Ifeanyi Ubah who was the mentor of the month provided opportunity to 10 lucky youths to go to China for more exposure, they are being prepared to become world class entrepreneurs,” he said.
“So, while other states are battling to provide ‘unavailable’ jobs, Anambra State through the visionary leadership of Gov. Obiano is changing the narratives for our youths, preparing them to become wealth creators and employers of labour.”
“These programs are only possible because we have a youth-friendly governor in Chief Willie Obiano; an energetic Commissioner for Youth, Bonaventure Enemali; and robust partnership with Stanel World, Anambra Broadcasting Service, DigitalPr-Wire and many other good willing individuals/groups.”
He said through the Digipreneur programs, 2000 persons have been mentored and over 2600 trained on digital skills while urging those who have had the privilege to make good use of the opportunities.
