06 September 2012, Sweetcrude, WARRI – NO fewer than 100 repentant militants in the Niger Delta region have graduated from a vocational training in various technical skills in line with the region’s amnesty programme.

The training, which was conducted by Glassfa Continental Limited, centred on welding and fabrication technology skills.

Speaking during the graduation of the trainees in Warri, Delta State, Chairman, Glassfa Continental, Evangelist Sam Fetimi, said the training was in furtherance of the Niger Delta amnesty programme, adding that his firm was able to train and develop the trainees to an acceptable standard.

He said: “We are proud to have impacted and graduated the first set of trainees from our training programme. We have been able to assist, develop, support and improve these individuals. At Glassfa, we believe that if you give a man fish, you feed him for one day, but if you teach him to fish, you feed him for life.”
