Lagos. December 16, 2012: The Delta State Government has partnered with National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in training forty computer engineers and information technology graduates for its pilot website design training.
The training, which is planned to be held twice a year, is set to equip engineering graduates in the state with requisite skills in website development, according to NAN report.
Declaring the training open, Emmanuel Uduaghan, Delta State Governor, who was represented by Sunny Ofili, Special Adviser on ICT, says the training scheme is geared towards making the trainees employers of labour after graduation. The programme is also expected to make them readily valuable to ICT companies that might be coming to the state.
“The state wants to use these two weeks to train computer engineers on A+, JAVA, Database and C++. Beneficiaries shall be able design personal websites to start business and be employers of labour, as no huge amount is needed to start up. Also, If Google, Facebook and Zinox want to have an office in Delta, they can be used as a point of call,” he says.
Ofili explains that the training was organized by the state government in conjunction with National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) to accelerate ICT growth in the state.
He assured that the training will be a life-changing experience for participants.
Responding on behalf of the participants, Festus Nwaomucha thanked the state government for organizing the training and appealed for its sustenance.
