The Ghana National Tailors and Dressmakers Association (GNTDA) has welcomed the political parties’ promises to prioritize Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET), when voted to power but has cautioned them not to treat it as one of the gimmicks used to solicit for vote from Ghanaians and later on fail to implement them.
Almost all political parties in the round-down to elections promises focus on Skill Training by making it free for those interested when voted into power but the GNTDA believes it may be one of the rhetoric.
Our Central Region reporter, Kojo Ata Kakrah Abrowah,(KAKA), at a graduation ceremony for graduates of the Association’s apprenticeship at Komenda in the Central Region, the Chairman of the Association, Mr Abdul Rahman Ibrahim, said the Association is happy that the leaders of the country are now realizing the importance of skill training and that focusing their attention to it.
He however disclosed that his greatest fear is to put those promises on the blind side when they win. The 39 graduates made up of 31 females and five males graduated and were awarded NVTI certificates.
Mr Abdul Rahman Ibrahim refuted the allegations that skill training is for poor academic students good but rather for sharp brains. He finally congratulated the graduands and urged them to go work with what they have learned and not relent on their job.
