  • Vocational training key to MSMEs development — Prof
  • SKILLS development arising from technical and
    vocational education in Nigeria can galvanize
    the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises
    (MSMEs) sector which is key to the industrial
    and economic advancement of the country.

    President of Vocational and Technical Educators
    of Nigeria, Prof. Patrick Egbule, stated this at the
    25th International Conference of Vocational and
    Technical Educators recently held in University
    of Calabar.
    According to Egbule, industrial and economic
    advancement in the country can become
    effective with skills in technical and vocational
    education which can galvanize the MSMEs
    sector. “The time is now for every Nigerian to be
    equipped with saleable skills with which they
    can contribute to society through meaningful
    work, especially in a post-oil boom economy.
    Our way out of recession lies therein,” he
    stated.
    The university don identified acquisition of
    vocational and technical skills by Nigerians as
    the ultimate panacea to the current economic
    recession in the country.

    He said recent experiences have shown that it is
    human capital rooted in skills development that
    determines the wealth of nations not just
    possession of abundant natural resources.
    This, he noted, explains why a country like
    Japan with virtually no natural resources has
    one of the largest economies in the world, while
    oil-rich countries such as Venezuela, Nigeria
    and Gabon are debt-ridden. “The human
    resources aspect of development should be
    appropriately refocused because it is capable of
    helping Nigeria achieve agricultural,
    technological and overall economic boom,” he
    added.
    Egbule said the theme for the conference,
    “Repositioning Technical and Vocational
    Education for Post-Oil Boom Economy”, was
    thoughtfully chosen.
    According to him, the aim was to provide a
    forum for tertiary institution educators,
    professionals, administrators and technical
    education practitioners to “meet and brainstorm
    on mechanisms to strategically reposition
    technical and vocational education to play its
    vital role of building skills and capacity in
    Nigeria to boost productivity, reduce
    unemployment and poverty in the post-oil boom
    economy in Nigeria.”
