Lagos moves to end building collapse, kicks off training of 4,000 artisans
Harps On Mentorship
Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has affirmed his administration’s commitment to resolving the incessant building collapse in the state through upgrading the skills of artisans.
Speaking in Lagos at the graduation ceremony of the first batch of the 4000 Master Craftsmen to be trained by the Ministry of Housing, Ambode, represented by the Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Babatunde Durosinmi-Etti, said use of skilled labour would help reduce rate of building collapse.
He noted that the empowerment has exposed the craftsmen to various skills and correct ignorant practices. The initiative, which was flagged off eight months ago, intends to train 4000 artisans in the state to bridge the competitive and technological gap.
Meanwhile, Lagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has said that senior civil servants must continue to mentor younger colleagues to ensure consistent and efficient service delivery.
Speaking at the opening session of a two-day workshop on leadership, Ambode represented by the Commissioner for Establishment, Training and Pensions, Dr Akintola Benson Oke, said that one of the key tenets of leadership is the need to pass on knowledge and experience to others.
