In line with the vision of His Excellency, Governor Akinwunmi Ambode that every graduate from any Tertiary Institution in Lagos State is equipped and ready for the world of work, Lagos State Government has included a private institution, Caleb University, Imota as one of the 8 participating institution for the ReadySetWork programme this year.
The Special Adviser to the Governor on Education, Mr. Obafela Bank-Olemoh explained the rationale behind the inclusion of Caleb University in the programme when he paid a courtesy visit to the Institutions Vice Chancellor’s office on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 for the ReadySetWork Sensitization.
Mr. Bank-Olemoh said the Governor is determined to run an all-inclusive Government. “Our vision is to ensure that every student who graduates from a tertiary institution situated in Lagos State participates in the training programme whether Government or private.” He stated.
At the sensitization event, the Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Ayandiji Daniel Aina on behalf of the School’s management expressed, sincere appreciation to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for inclusion of Caleb University, though a Private Institution to the State project and pledged their total support. In his word, “We are very excited about this project because it’s an opportunity to impact our students with the necessary skills for the labour market and we thank the Governor for this thoughtful display of his large heart, he has always delivered on his promises”.
In a similar event, the ReadySetWork Sensitization tour stopped at Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED), Ijanikin on Monday April 16, 2017 to raise the awareness among students and enjoin them to register for the RSW Online Academy in order to participate in the campus training programme scheduled to start in July.
The Provost of AOCEOD, Dr. (Mrs) Ladele Aina Omolola speaking during the sensitization event pointed out that the Teacher Track of the programme which was included in the 2017 edititon of the programme was a prove of the State Government’s commitment to teacher training. In 2016, I appealed to the Special Adviser, and he graciously included it in the programme. She encourage students to register for the programme.
Mr. Bank-Olemoh has made it clear that every final year student must complete the RSW online academy to stand a chance of partaking in the campus classes in July, 2018. ”This programme is very competitive, we expect over 7000 registrants and only 5000 will be admitted into the programme. It is truly the survival of the fittest. So register now and complete the process to secure your slot.” He added.
