He said the future of Nigerian youths is the ability to become a worthwhile entrepreneur and that entrepreneurship is the key to a successful graduate of Polytechnics so that they can use the skills to employ others.

The curriculum for teaching entrepreneurship courses in our institutions was reviewed last year and this year, we are carrying out this workshop on how to deliver these courses.

Not only that, but books are also being developed which will now be impacted on our students through the lecturers,” he added.

On his part, the executive secretary, Tertiary Education Trust Fund (TETFund), Sonny Echono, said entrepreneurship and skills development through the use of individual's skills set, resources and exchange would profit the nation as well as promote employment.

We want to commend the committee of rectors for coming up with the review of the curriculum that focuses on how entrepreneurship should be taught and practiced. Initially, our focus has been how we are going to have an enterprise, small business or how to engage in activities that will have additional income,“ he said.
