The Lagos State Coconut Development Authority (LASCODA), in collaboration with the Lagos State Employment Trust Fund (LSETF), has set plans in motion to organise a 4-week long coconut-based arts and craft training for residents of the State.

The General Manager, LASCODA, Mr. Dapo Olakulehin, who disclosed this recently, explained that the training programme is one of the government initiatives aimed at making Lagos a 21st-Century Economy.

He said, “The aim of the training is to create sustainable job opportunities for young graduates and youths with a passion for arts and craft making. The training will run five different sessions and would be facilitated by experts in the field of Coconut Arts and Craft”.

“The training will serve as a waste to wealth opportunity and a worthwhile venture for selected young entrepreneurs. It will fully entail theoretical concepts and detailed practical sessions that, when concluded, will optimise the use of coconut shell that is a major waste product in coconut processing”, he stated.

Olakulehin disclosed that the training is focused on empowering women and youths but interested men, who are less than 35 years old can still apply, stressing that all applicants must also have passion for arts and design, possess LASRRA ID Numbers and must be literate or holders of a School Leaving Certificate.

The General Manager also informed that the training would not be a one-off thing as Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has approved that the programme is held biannually.
