ICCI president tasks chambers of commerce


President of the Ibadan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mike Fowowe, has called on graduates in Nigeria to create employments for themselves and others instead of seeking jobs.
Fowowe said many Nigerian graduates ignore the simple way to success, adding that chambers of commerce in Nigeria should play their role in job creation.
He said, “You do not need to become a graduate before you know what to do. We want graduates to know that they should not always look for jobs but create them for their own benefit and that of others. This is an area where chambers of commerce all over Nigeria can help to ease unemployment rate in Nigeria.
“In Ibadan, the chamber has a level ground for young graduates. We have a training group known as Business Education/Training Course which encourages people with no professional skill in the business they do to be re-trained. The training group is also anchoring a programme that involves primary school pupils. We give them entrepreneurial skill acquisition.
