Speaking, the Chairman of the occasion and Deputy Speaker, Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon. Mathew Okedare described the programme as highly commendable and great way of impacting the society.

Okedare said the computer skill acquisition programme is a creative initiative that would develop young, vibrant and result oriented entrepreneurs who would in the nearest future become job creators as against job seekers, a trend that is fast becoming the norm in the society.

While admonishing the graduands to count themselves lucky for the programme, the lawmaker challenged other public office holders to emulate the good work and intentions behind such programme.
