A corporate organisation, T&T Web Designing and Marketing Services has called on state governments to emulate Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri’s effort at repositioning the education sector in the state.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, T&T Web Designing and Marketing Services, Dr Thaddaeus Thompson, said this in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
Thompson made the call following recent maiden Education Summit organised by the Bayelsa State Government.
He said nothing could beat a repositioned education sector, adding that it was panacea for youth engagement and national development.
He said as a firm, which is deeply involved in youth development, particularly in Bayelsa State, where it’s was situated, it was aware of the deep need for educational and youth development.
He also disclosed that his company’s Corporate Social Responsibility, CSR, currently focuses on boosting potential and prospects of young people in the State in order for them to have a bright and great future.
“Development is basically driven by education, where science, technology and research have added value to human existence, and has now made the world a global village.
“In line with this, Bayelsa State Governor, Douye Diri, has proved to be the man with the right vision for the state, Niger Delta region and Nigeria as a whole.
“We commend his bold initiative to organise the maiden Bayelsa State Education Summit with theme ‘‘Optimizing the Delivery, Performance and Sustainability of Outcomes in the Education Sector.
“We at T&T Web Designing and Marketing Services believe strongly in the potential and prospects of the Nigerian youth.
This is because we see how these young people are making impact across the world, and have carved a niche for themselves because of their outstanding performances in different fields of studies.
“Nigeria is blessed with a strong youth population which countries do not take lightly because they are a force to reckon with anytime and anywhere.
Thompson pledged the firm’s support for subsequent summits as part of its Corporate Social responsibility, CSR, which he said was youth driven.
“Since establishment of this company in Nigeria as a group called T&T CALGroup, which T&T Web Designing and Marketing Services, and SWEER Global Farms are part of, with global headquarters in the US, youth development has been our focus.
He called on youths in the state and the country at large to embrace peace, desist from drug abuse, cybercrime and other vices.
