In a bid to add value to the economic system of Kwara state, the Rector, International Vocational, Technical and Entrepreneurship College (IVTEC), Ajase-Ipo, Dr. Yaru S. Salihu has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Industrial Training Fund (ITF).

The MoU with the Industrial Training Fund (ITF) was signed shortly after a public hearing organized by Senate Committee on Industries, on Tuesday 19th July, 2022 at the National Assembly, Abuja.

According to Dr. Yaru, the need to sign this MoU becomes expedient as part of the college’s exertion to train youth and women in special trades to strengthen and add value to Kwara state economic standard.

During the public hearing, Dr. Yaru submitted that there is a need to empower the trainees with the necessary equipment after the training. This is the only way the beneficiaries could be made to settle and earn their living after skills acquisition.

“There is a need to review upwards periodically the contribution of the 1% of the profits from the industries or companies in Nigeria to ITF given the dynamics of the Nigerian economy and the uncontrolled plunging of the naira internationally”, he added.

The Rector, however, led other college functionaries on a thank-you visit to the Senator Representing Kwara Central at the Red Chamber, Sen. Ibrahim Yahaya Oloriegbe. You’ll recall that Senator Oloriegbe had sponsored some selected youth and students to embark on a training exercise at IVTEC, to reduce youth unemployment and poverty.

The college is especially grateful for the intervention of Senator Ibrahim Oloriegbe to create a working relationship with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and bring about progress and development for the institution.
