YABATECH trains final year students on leadership, skills acquisition
To prepare its students for the future, Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) recently organised a leadership and skills acquisition training for final year students.
During the workshop titled, “The person of the leader and people skill” organised by the students’ affairs unit in collaboration with Grace Johnson Institute for developing leaders, the rector, Obafemi Omokungbe, described the programme as timely saying many youths have not been able to discover their potentials.
Omokungbe said the school recognised the importance of youth development and its great impact in the society, hence the support it has continually given to project of this nature.
According to him, the college has created the enabling environment for leadership development and skill acquisition training for students, adding, “we all know it is important to get the youths prepared and involved in the things that will shape their lives and the society in days to come.
“A good leader must be able to influence his environment positively; as a product of YABATECH who has acquired leadership and academic training, you must be noted for excellence wherever you find yourself,” he said.
Chief Executive Officer of the institute, Mrs. Grace Oby Johnson, in her keynote address, spoke extensively on tips of becoming a good leader and significance of skills acquisition.
