Industry Minister Uzoka-Anite: “Expected a swift completion of the ITF building project.”



The Industrial Training Fund (ITF) is on schedule to finish its ambitious multipurpose conference center project, situated in the center of Abuja’s critical commercial sector, in an effort to support vocational training and skills acquisition in Nigeria.

In order to promote growth, innovation, and prosperity in the country, the landmark 12-story structure is intended to be completed as soon as possible. Dr. Doris Uzoka-Anite, the new Minister for Industry, Trade, and Investment, has demonstrated steadfast resolve to see this through.

The 2018 approval of the ITF conference center project, which was given to Dantata and Sawoe Construction Company, is a crucial step in Nigeria’s efforts to diversify its economy and improve its workforce.

The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC), the Nigeria Incentive-Based Risk Sharing System for Agricultural Lending (NIRSAL), the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC), and the still-under-construction Nigerian Customs Service building are all close to the complex’s prime location in Maitama.

The project’s potential to greatly improve the ITF’s efforts at skill acquisition and vocational training makes it significant. The training center can currently hold 319 people each session. With the recent building investment, this capacity is expected to rise to about 1,200 people per session.

This expansion aims to serve a number of industries, such as ICT, plumbing, plastering, GSM repairs, welding and fabrication, refrigeration, automotive capabilities, and more.

On a familiarization visit of the ITF building site, Dr. Uzoka-Anite, who recently took office, demonstrated her dedication to making sure the project is completed successfully and on schedule. In accordance with the administration’s objective of creating jobs in Nigeria, the Minister pledged her commitment to fostering industry innovation and opening doors for job seekers.

Due to its complexity, the project, which was initially scheduled for delivery in June 2021, ran into a number of problems. Nonetheless, Dr. Uzoka-Anite’s resolve indicates a renewed commitment to overcoming these obstacles and guaranteeing the Industrial Training Fund Building’s successful completion—a milestone that is expected to bear witness to Nigeria’s commitment to industrial advancement, economic diversification, and skills development.

Nigeria is pursuing economic growth and diversification, and the completion of the ITF building is in line with the country’s objectives for sustainability, innovation, and global competitiveness.
