Bosch Nigeria has reiterated its commitment to creating more jobs for Nigerian youths to address the enormous challenges of youth unemployment. This was made known during a media chat at the national finals of iCreate festival held in Lagos recently.
The Managing Director of Robert Bosch, Nigeria, Mr. Ghislain Noumbessy, said the decision to support iCreate festival hinges on the organisation’s dedication towards building competences and skills of the people in the regions the company operates.
Mr. Noumbessy explained that since 2008, Bosch has been one of the main participants of “Afrika Kommt,” an initiative that grooms young Africans to become future managers of Africa, while disclosing that Mr. Samson Ajayi, Retail and User Marketing Manager, Bosch Power Tools Nigeria, was once a participant in the “Afrika Kommt.”
Speaking further on the reason behind partnering with iCreate Africa for the 2019 iCreate festival, Mr. Ajayi emphasised that Bosch is committed to creating jobs in Nigeria to curb the issues of youth unemployment.
“Bosch is passionate about the development of the communities where it operates. We are long-term oriented, and we believe that one of the ways we can contribute to solving socio-economic issues in Nigeria is mainly to support organisations like iCreate to encourage people to acquire skills and re-orientate people that having a skill or building your livelihood on a set of skills is not a mistake,” he stated.
Mr Ajayi emphasised that Bosch will continue to seek sustainable partnerships targeted at enhancing the livelihood of the Nigerian youths.
