The Ondo State Governor , Mr Rotimi Akeredolu , has said his administration will invest more in technical education to create more jobs for the youths of the state .
Akeredolu said this in Akure on Sunday while reacting to the destruction of properties across the state by some angry youths during the # EndSARS protest in the state .
According to him , the youths were angry and embarked on the protest because they were not properly engaged .
He said , “ Our efforts on entrepreneurship and self – development of the youths shall be redoubled going further. The state government is more prepared than ever before, to provide the necessary atmosphere for human capital development.
“ Similarly , our technical / vocational education sector shall receive better attention. In a matter of weeks , the government shall , alongside stakeholders, have a critical appraisal of the sector to strengthen it for the maximum benefits of our teeming youths . All over the world, vocations have made more meaningful impacts on society.
“ We are aware of the dangerous dimensions which some of us are struggling to infuse into the Ondo State share of the current national concern . It is worrisome . For one , unless we all deploy our ingenuities to a collective drive for purposeful action , no one is exempted from the looming consequences of divisiveness and mischief .”
