Earlier, the Chairman, Board of Trustees of ACROJ, Agba Jalingo said the meeting, which was a continuation of one from Wednesday was aimed at creating more opportunities for Nigerians who could not get certification for their skill set due to cumbersome processes in the education sector.

Mr. Jalingo had in a statement on Wednesday evening said the IOJ is a “long dream if members of ACROJ,” which he said aimed at “developing capacity” and to, “train manpower for the online media sector which is now leading the pace in our State in particular and around the world.”
