Stanbic IBTC partners LAGS to empower youths

Stanbic IBTC in a bid to support Government’s initiative to create employment has entered into a partnership with Lagos State Government to supply free Point-of-Sale (PoS) to youths, thereby creating jobs.

According to Lagos State Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs Yetunde Arobieke, 5000 youths would be trained on PoS business.

She explained that Stanbic IBTC   will provide the machines, chairs, tables and umbrellas to registered youths.

According to her, the government was ready to partner with private organisations to make investments in infrastructure that will create good jobs for Lagosians, build stronger communities, and make the economy resilient for everyone.

The scheme would enhance job creation by enabling target beneficiaries to join network of agents providing financial-related services.
