On April, 2017, held the Public Presentation Ceremony (unveiling) of the book entitled “Handbook of Skill Acquisition Training and Empowerment Programmes.” Which was carried out to formally introduce the book to the global community. The unveiling held at the ambience of the Benue Hall, Abuja Internal Conference Centre, Area 11, Garki, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory.

  • The event attracted a distinguished gathering of crème de la crème fellows from Nigeria, cutting across dignitaries from both the public and private sectors. Academicians, business managers, representatives of various Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), representatives of State Governments and some students of tertiary institutions were present in the ceremony.
  • The author, Dr. Benjamin Onoriode Irikefe, was highly commended for putting together such masterpiece for the development of human capital. The book chronicles the author’s well over 25 years involvement in the training and management of Non-militant, Restive and Ex-militant Youths and Persons.
  • The book is a world class trainer’s work tool and is recommended as a useful textbook and invaluable for government, students, institutions of higher learning, private individuals, corporate organisations who wish to better the lives of their retirees & in their corporate social responsibilities, and also to arrest the trend of unemployable graduates being produced from our tertiary institutions annually.
