Covid-19 Lockdown accelerated the rise of digital businesses while also altering the work landscape for young people. Job opportunities are becoming increasingly digital, which means that digital skills are in high demand.
However, it appears that the talents that are accessible on the job market do not match the needs of businesses. How are Nigeria’s fast expanding youths preparing for these new digital jobs?
“Are Nigerian youths equipped with the skill sets required for this new era?” is the big question here.
According to the founder of Grazac Academy, the Academy was founded to assist Nigerian youths in learning technology skills while paying nothing until they get hired.
Victor Adeleye revealed that he believes that if Africa is to rise and Nigeria is to thrive, the ICT sector and our youths must be prioritized.
With Nigeria as Africa’s most populous country and one of the world’s greatest youth populations, fostering technical skills would not only enhance our GDP but also prepare us for the fifth industrial revolution.
