    It is good that this kind of opportunity is in place. It’s quite unfortunate/fortunate i got to know about it today. I will like to implore the authority in charge to create more awareness to the public (youth) in making sure that day in day out the media publicising this development on radio and television stations. From my research many youth that have enterprenual skill are not aware of this development.
