Retired Gen. Paul Boroh, one of the graduating students and newly certified Success Ambassador of Interweave Solutions, a former Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta Affair said that interweave’s programme was designed to transform people of low calibre of poverty to prosperity.

He said that most Nigerian youths were always looking for white collar jobs after graduation from school.

Boroh said that Interweave solution was brought into the country to make people to stand on their own in business and support the government in creating job opportunities for people.

He called on the private sector to support the effort of Nigerian government in creating jobs, adding that government alone could not provide all the required jobs needed in the country.

“The private sector have come in to support the effort of the government, this is what this programme is all about, giving the capacity to develop upcoming entrepreneurs like what President Muhammadu Buhari is preaching now.

“The president is emphatic on the promotion of agriculture, we have left agriculture for too long and is affecting the entrepreneurs in terms of creativity, economy and job opportunities.
