The Delta State Government’s Skills and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) has continued to receive positive reactions from beneficiaries as 44 STEPreneurs trained in Electrical Installation and Solar Works receive starter pack items.

 One of the visionary steps taken by His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, following his inauguration as Governor of Delta State on the 29th of May 2015., was to create Office of the Chief Job Creation Officer (OCJCO). The Office was conceived as a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) of the Governor’s Office, for the planning, formulation and implementation of youth-targeted job creation programmes in the state. This innovative model of programme implementation was the core element of strategy aimed at ensuring professionalism, efficiency, effectiveness and lasting impacts in promoting and actualizing skills-based entrepreneurship and self-employment among youths.
