Scores of Plateau youths trained in film production

Sir Joseph Ari, the Director-General/Chief Executive of the Industrial Training Fund (ITF), has applauded the Plateau Diaspora Tourism and Culture Agency for their effort toward ensuring Plateau youths aspire for entrepreneurship in the creative industry and have access to the tools required for a digital learning/training.

Sir Ari gave the commendation in Jos at the training of over 700 youths in film production organised by Accelerating the True Potential, said the fund has attracted entrepreneurship and innovation advancement that provide and promote platforms for local and international programmes aimed at making it easier for anyone to start and maintain a business.

The “Accelerate your True Potential” event is very important to the country’s current economic experience and there is no better time to have this programme than now.

He said it is evident that the country cannot continue to be dependent on oil, stressing that it is imperative to look towards other sectors for the sustenance of our future economy.

The conveners of the programme, Josephine Ibrahim and Lady Gertrude Longwan Odoala from the United States and the United Kingdom respectively, who are members of the board of directors of the Plateau State Tourism Corporation in Diaspora, said they targeted over one million youths to be trained.

The duo argued that Accelerating the True Potential of our youth promises to redefine the direction of flow that the teaming youths will take in their career pursuits in the film industry which will have a profound lifetime effect on how they will conduct themselves in the business world, particularly in the film industry.

This has made the state the film producers’ haven.

Tourism plays a vital role in the socio-economic development of the developed countries, saying their mission is to identify and engage critical stakeholders and harvest the vast human, financial and technical sources of the Diaspora community through the public, private partnership (PPP) approach.
