The Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment, Okechukwu Enelamah, said the council approved the contract for the construction of the second phase and the completion of the Industrial Training Fund’s multi-purpose conference centre in Abuja at the cost of N6.5bn, inclusive of Value Added Tax.

He stated, “The importance of this is that the ITF is one of the most important agencies of government when it comes to vocational training and skills acquisition, and Abuja is a very important centre of training for the ITF.

“It has a training facility that can train 319 people per session. With this investment in this building, it can increase that capacity to about 1,200 per session. So, it is a fairly big facility.
