Governor Aregbesola stated this at the official launch of the OYESTECH empowerment scheme.
Aregbesola explained that his administration embarked on the scheme as a means of reducing chronic youth unemployment in the state.
He stressed that the 700 OYESTECH youths have been trained with necessary skills needed for sustainable employment in the information and communication technology by the RLG company.
According to him, the skills acquired during the training would provide wide range of opportunities for gainful employment for the youths involved.
He further maintained that his administration will stop at nothing at ensuring a reasonable reduction in youth unemployment and promoting a better life for all and sundry.
Earlier in a remark, the managing director osun state investment company limited OSSICOL, Mr Bola Oyebanji noted that about 700 OYESTECH members will be given direct employment by Multichoice.
Also speaking, the country director RLG, Mr Tosin Ilesanmi said the the idea behind the scheme is to make the youths employers of labour rather than employees.
