…..Charges them to be good ambassadors of the State
…..approves commencement of Batch ‘B’
“There is something very important about today. Few months back, I was here to flag-off this program with about Fifty youths, and interestingly, COVID 19 has actually taught us a lesson, and it has made it possible for all of us, even those of us who are analogue, to begin to think digitally.
We know that the world is moving very fast to everything ICT, and as a State, we should not be left behind. Therefore, let me use this medium to congratulate the Honourable Commissioner for Communications, Science and Technology who has keyed in, and is running very fast with the policies of this Government.
This is a government of prosperity, and at this age and time, there can be no prosperity without ICT. Therefore, I announce the commencement of the training of the second batch of One Hundred and Fifty Youths, and that will commence from today. Let me charge the beneficiaries to see this as a golden opportunity to position themselves in the emerging digital world, and always be good ambassadors of the State as they thrive in their new found profession, and for those beginning in the training, please conduct yourselves properly and be serious with your lectures.
