Kilak South County Member of Parliament, Hon. Gilbert Olanya has commended President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and the NRM Government for skilling the youth through the Zonal Industrial Hub Initiative.

Hon. Olanya made the remarks during the passing out of 212 and 218 students who graduated at the Acholi and Lango Zonal Industrial Hubs, respectively, after completing a free five and six months of skills development training in different vocational disciplines.

“For the youths who have graduated today, never think that your future has gone. Even if you didn’t reach Senior Two or Senior Four, the certificate you are getting today, in five to 10 years to come will be far much better than someone who went to university and qualified as an engineer” Hon. Olanya said.

His Highness Won Nyaci Lango Apap Yosam Odur Ebii, the Lango Paramount Chief, expressed gratitude to Gen. Museveni for being a visionary leader who has not only created a secure country but also initiated a good program of equipping youths with employable and valuable skills.

The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) member also assured the beneficiaries that due to the skills they have acquired, five years from now, they will be much better than many university graduates who only acquired theory during their time of the study.

The State House Comptroller, Ms. Jane Barekye, says president Yoweri Museveni initiated the Industrial hubs project across the country in order to enhance youth skilling and training.
