His words:
“I registered in the Governor’s wife office and was invited. You can see I am over fifty years but I am here to learn so that I can feed my family. I have already learnt basic tailoring and more. Look at the chiffons I made and other cloths that many of us have learnt to make in three weeks. I want you people to carry our thanks to Osodieme! Mama Anambra! Tell her that we are praying for her and our Governor every day.”
Also speaking on behalf of their colleagues in Hairdressing and Soap making classes, Miss Chinenye Omeje and Mrs. Christiana Ndibe, said that the skills Acquisition programme has been a rewarding new experience which would serve as a solid template for success in their quest for entrepreneurship.
