No fewer than 80 youths were trained in tailoring and fashion design at Federal Government’s newly established tailoring hub in Osun, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
The hub, located at the National Youth Development Centre in Ode-Omu, Osun, was equipped with industrial and computerised machines, button and weaving machines, stand-by generator, among others.

The youths, who were drawn from the six geopolitical zones, were trained by the Ministry of Youths and Sports Development under its National Skills Acquisition on Tailoring and Fashion Design.

NAN also reports that the youths were trained for three weeks in pattern design, sewing of suit, shirt and trouser, window blind, servicing of industrial machine, financial literacy, among others.

Speaking at the closing ceremony for the trainees on Sunday in Ode-Omu, Osun, Solomon Dalung, Minister for Youths and Sports Development, said the centre was set up to assist youths to acquire skills that would boost the growth of the textile industry in Nigeria in line with Economic Growth and Recovery plan.

Dalung said the programme, which was first of its kind by the ministry, was designed to assist skilled youths to compete in the fashion and design industry locally and internationally.

The minister was represented by Mr Folashade Adesola, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry.
