Sequel to the appointment of his company, Skill G Nig. Ltd as Education and Development Consultant to the ECOWAS Commission, the Chancellor of Gregory University Uturu, Prof Gregory Ibe is currently part of a team of experts on an extensive tour of some member countries.
According to the schedule made available to the ACE Online by the ECOWAS Commission, the first part of the fact-finding tour took the technocrats from Skill G and some officials of ECOWAS to three member nations commencing from Guinea-Bissau.
While in Guinea-Bissau, the team visited and held strategic discussions with the president of the country, Umaro Sissoco Embalo, Prime Minister, Nuno Gomes Nabiam, Speaker of the National Assembly, Cipriano Cassama, and ministers in charge of Economy, Foreign Affairs, Agriculture, Education, Finance, Fisheries, Vocational Training, Defence, Women and Family. The very tight schedule also includes meetings with Resident Representatives of the World Bank and UNDP and field visits to such cities as Bafata and Cacheu.
It is believed that the seven days Guinea-Bissau trip will enable the Prof Ibe-led team collate and propose interventionist strategies that will assist in reviving the economy of the country leveraging entrepreneurial empowerment, while deploying the Skill G Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) modules.
