Governorship candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Plateau state, Nentawe Yilwatda, has said that if elected, he will revive and equip technical schools in the state to promote skills that are relevant to the 21 century economy.
According to him, in the nearest future, talent and skills will represent the critical factor of production more than capital.
Sharing his thoughts on his twitter handle, Yilwatda said, jobs of the future must fit into skills-based economy.
He said, if Plateau must evolve as participant in the global skill-based economy, technical schools and relevant technology centres must be revived to provide skills that fits into the global market space.
He said: “In the nearest future, talent and skills will be the currency of our generation, and more than capital, they will represent the critical factor of production.
“The jobs of the future must fit into this skills-based economy. Most multinationals are already dropping certificates as requirement for hiring.
“If Plateau must evolve with the world as participants of this global skill-based economy, we must:
“Revive, reskill and upskill our Technical Secondary Schools and Relevant Technology centres to fit the jobs of the global market space;
“Increase the number of Technical Secondary Schools and Relevant Technology centres;
“Review the curriculum, equip the workshops, upskill the staff and introduce courses of the 21st century.
“We can’t use 20th century education to resolve 21st century problems.
“I am prepared to lead this evolution on the Plateau, kindly join the #GenerationNext train.”
