ALAKIJA DONATES SKILLS ACQUISITION CENTRE TO YABATECH, ADVOCATES SKILL BASED TECHNICAL COLLEGES

A clarion call has gone out to the Federal Government for the establishment of skills based Technical Colleges across the country. The Chairman, Rose of Sharon Foundation, Mrs. Folorunsho Alakija gave this call at the commissioning of the Folorunso Alakija Skills Acquisition Centre which she donated to Yaba College of Technology. Alakija stated that Germany is what it is today due to the huge efforts placed on human development vis- a-vis the acquisition of skills, and that Nigeria should emulate such act by establishing technical Colleges in order to produce skillful personnel that has gone through series of technical trainings in different fields. According to her, the Skills Acquisition Centre will provide trainings in the area of fashion design, bead making, make-up artistry, shoe making, welding and fabrication as well as provide support for a skillful Nigeria. “Acquiring a skill is important for livelihood. When a nation directs attention to skills, there is a turn around because the provided skills would affect positively various productive industries which would in turn accelerate technical growth and development in Nigeria”, she added. The richest woman in Africa who accepted to be the Coordinator of the Board of Fellow of YABATECH highlighted the positive effects of a skillful economy as the emergence of self-development, cottage industries, reduced unemployment and a prosperous economy. “Prosperity does not come overnight but through doggedness and determination. Everyone must contribute to the development of Nigeria, she advocated. Appreciating the gesture, the Rector of Yabatech, Engr. Femi Omokungbe described the Centre as not only a blessing to the College but to the nation because the support for entrepreneurship and skill acquisition development is an open door to fulfilling the dreams of many. “Skills are the pathway to prosperity and personal development. With the right skills, individuals are prepared for active citizenship and open possibilities because they are equipped to set up their own business and also create jobs for others”. Stressing further the challenge of unemployment in Nigeria as well as the need to develop skills through vocational training, Omokungbe urged both the private and public sectors to partner with academic institutions in the training of Nigerian youths on different skills for national development.

Sustainability, a key word in the challenge is defined in terms of economic, environmental and social capacities of well-being. Man has a duty to develop ways to improve the environment rather than destroy it; a central reason for that is the impact of climate change that has created so much damage in our world. “The UNEVOC main theme for this year is Get Skilled, Go Green; Go Green, Get Skilled, which aligns with the worldwide need for sustainability. A synonymous for sustainability is “greening” which is used in the theme to breakdown the several areas which include Carbon Footprint; Energy and Resources Efficiency, Green Jobs, Green Skills and Green Governance. We are bringing this discourse to our youths to increase their awareness about global trends and dimensions. It is also a challenge to our youths to develop skills that will provide green and innovative solutions to today and tomorrow’s problems, also, it is important to get the youths prepared and involved in the things that would shape their lives and the society in the days to come, because tomorrow belongs to the youth”.

Rector charges Yabatech community to reuse or refuse plastic

The Rector, Yaba College of Technology (Yabatech), Engr. Obafemi Omokungbe has implored the entire College community to shun improper disposal of plastic and waste in general, because of its harmful effect to the environment. Omokungbe made the pronouncement during the World Environmental Day with the theme “Beat Plastic Pollution”; stating that when you have too much plastic in the ocean, you will have much plastic than the fishes and that could affect our lives negatively. He noted that the purpose of World Environmental Day is to create awareness and consciousness of the problem that plastic emanate for us; and promised that Yabatech would key into the awareness by spreading the gospel and ensure that people refuse it. “On behalf of the Management we are going to make a lot of dustbin available in the College, so that if you cannot reuse the plastic then you can refuse it by dropping it in the dustbin in order not to litter the surrounding, and that would help us to sustain the environment”. The Managing Director of Greenhill Recycling, Mrs. Lawani who was at the event discouraged the act of dumping plastic in the environment because it would end up in ocean, there should be alternative source to it so that it would not eventually come back to harm us. “Any plastic in the ocean stays for a thousand years or more, fish would mistake the plastic for food by eating it and die, the dead fish would be sold and people eventually eat the plastic thinking they are eating fish”. Lawani noted that our waste ought to be separated by putting plastic; can, paper, sachet, and cardboard in different bins then inform the recycling agent to dispose and recycle the waste and make money from it. “Recycling prevents waste of potentially useful materials, saves energy and reduces air, soil and water pollution. It also prevents habitat destruction, environmental pollution, reduces raw material extraction and combats climate change” she added. A student of Environmental Biology Yabatech, Jolly Francess hinted that our milieu should be rid of plastic; because the environmental effect of plastic is that during rainfall it gets to the drainage and hinders free flow of waters and resulted to mosquito which causes malaria. Also, plastic makes water look ugly and the death of fish in the water as a result of plastic reduces the oxygen content of the water.

The book discusses on more principles of Urban and Regional Planning with examples from the country’s situation; also on some urban environmental problems in Lagos Mega-City. It is a useful reference material for governmental offices, consultants in the construction industry, lecturer and students in local and foreign tertiary institutions. It covers syllabus for examination by Town Planners Registration Council of Nigeria for Urban & Regional Planning.” Her second publication titled “URBANISATION AND THE LAGOS MEGA-CITY” captures the phenomenal growth of Lagos, the attendant environmental challenges and efforts made to address the issues. It highlights the potential of investment tourism in Lagos Mega-City. She reveals that it will be an asset to private and public libraries and for multi-national corporate bodies, Town Planning Professionals, allied disciplines and for government offices as references. Foreign based readers can learn more from this book about the challenges of urbanization of cities in developing countries such as Lagos the most urbanized city in West Africa. “Having lived in Lagos from 1965-till date, I have witnessed a greater part of the phenomenal growth of Lagos in my 45 years of Town Planning professional experience. My education at the University of Melbourne, Australia (1971-1972) has also exposed me to international norms in planning theory and practice. I am a fellow of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) England, and keep in touch with the RTPI by maintaining my membership”. “In writing both books, I have spared no cost or expense for best professional practice. Both books also feature some projects I worked on as a foundation staff in Lagos State Civil Service at Ikeja Area Planning Authority/LSDPC (1965-1979); as a lecturer in Urban and Regional Planning at Lagos State Polytechnic (December 1985-June 1986), at Yabatech as HOD, Urban & Regional Planning (July 1986-2000), at Lagos State University (2011-2013), and as a Town Planning Consultants (1980-1985, 2000-2017). I have been external examiner and moderator to University of Lagos, Yabatech and other tertiary institutions on their Urban & Regional Planning programmes.” “The research and production of the two publications were self motivated and entirely self financed. It is my humble contribution to national human resources development and I believe that the College community (lectures and students) will find both books very useful. I hereby donate a copy of each of the two books to the library of the following departments: Urban & Regional Planning, Architecture, Building Technology, Estate Management, Surveying & Geo-informatics and Quantity Surveying”. The Rector thanked her for remembering the College 18 years after retirement, also for the kind gesture of presenting inestimable valuable materials to the College; and commended her resilient spirit of still writing even though she has retired. He encouraged her not to relent because the books will remain a lasting legacy that people will refer to in years to come. He thereby on behalf of the Management bought 10 copies each of the two publications to the College Library with substantial amount.
