0 9

The National Business and Technical Examination
Board on Thursday said it would collaborate with
public and private secondary schools across the
country, as part of efforts to promote skill acquisition
and make Nigerian students employable after graduation.

The Registrar and Chief Executive of the
board, Dr. Olatunde Aworanti, who made this known
in Benin during a sensitization workshop organized
for principals and proprietors of over 300 private and
secondary schools in the state, explained that the
partnership was prompted by the urgent need to
prepare and empower school leavers for the harsh
economic realities bedeviling the country.Aworanti
said that the initiative had been successfully applied
in Ghana to revamp its economy and urged the
managers of secondary education in the state to play
a complementary role by integrating vocational and
technical subjects into their school curricular.

He, however, pledged the support of the board to
certify secondary school leavers in basic trades,
through its various certificate examinations, in order
make them economically self-reliant and reduce
youth restiveness in Nigeria.“The need for all school
leavers to be equipped with survival skills that will
enable them cope with emerging challenges of the
current technological age cannot be over-
emphasized.

“Therefore, I invite you and other principals of secondary
schools nationwide to key
into the quest to make the nation’s students
employable and globally competitive after their
graduation from secondary and tertiary levels of
education by enrolling them for NABTEB
examinations,” Aworanti said.Also speaking at the
event, the Edo State Commissioner for Higher
Education, Barrister Washington Usifo, commended
the board for extending it programmes to secondary
education.He also pledged the support of the state
government towards their implementation.
