As part of its collaboration with the Federal Government through the NYSC scheme, leading commercial bank, Access Bank Plc. is developing integrated skill acquisition centers across Nigeria’s North-East.

These training centers are designed to empower thousands of young people with vocational skills that will aid poverty alleviation and drive long term, sustainable economic growth in the entire region which has been affected by years of crisis.

These training centres, the first set of which is currently being constructed in Gombe State, will also see NYSC Corps members deployed as part of their compulsory 12 months national service. While NYSC has existing training centers across the country, these are the largest so far.

Speaking on the partnership, Access Bank’s Executive Director, Personal Banking Division, Victor Etuokwu said the Bank has had a long-standing relationship with the NYSC.

Meanwhile, total number of persons fully employed in the country dropped by about 1,000,000 (1.8%) when compared to Q3 2016, a decrease of 1.92 million (3.5% drop) when compared to Q4 2015.
