The Nasrul-Lahi-l-Fatih Society (NASFAT) says it has trained more than 50 youths in digital marketing as part of the initiatives to stem unemployment in the country.
Imam Abdul-Azeez Onike, the Chief Missioner of NASFAT, in a statement on Thursday, said that youths, irrespective of their religious affiliation were selected for the training.
“NASFAT is poised at complementing efforts of the government in reducing youth unemployment and youth restiveness in the country.
“We are doing this by providing the youths with various skills that are relevant to the nation’s development.
“The training initiative fits perfectly with the livelihood component of the HELD (Health, Education, Livelihood and Da’wah) agenda of NASFAT.
“We have trained about 50 youths in digital marketing and they will now be undertaking internships in companies to further strengthen their skills,” he said.
Onike urged employers of labour to engage the certified group of digital marketers to improve their market presence, visibility and positioning of their companies’ brands for improved sales.
