YABATECH organises seminar for final-year students

Yaba College of Technology (YABATECH) has organised  leadership and skills acquisition seminar for its final-year students,  comprising ND II and HND II students.

According to the statement made available to Blueprint and signed by the school’s public relations officer, Felix Alade, the seminar was  designed to adequately prepare the students for future challenges and positive impact in the society.

The seminar, the statement revealed,  was organised by the Student Affairs Unit in collaboration with Grace Johnson Institute for Developing Leaders.

The rector of the college, Engr Obafemi Omokungbe, in his opening speech noted that the programme would not have come at a more appropriate time than now, when many youths have not been able to discover their potential.

Omokungbe added that Yabatech management recognised the importance of youth development and its great impact in the society, hence the support it has continually given to projects of this nature.

He said the college has created the enabling environment for leadership development and skill acquisition training for students because “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 Yaba the great who has acquired leadership and academic training, you must be distinguished for excellence wherever you find yourself,” he said.

The founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Grace Johnson Centre for Developing Leaders, Mrs Grace Oby Johnson was the keynote speaker during the seminar.

She spoke extensively on how to become a good leader and the significance of skill acquisition.
