Theophilus Danjuma Opens Skill Acquisition Center in Yobe State

Theophilus Yakubu Danjuma, a Nigerian millionaire and the chairman of the Victims Support Fund (VSF), has established a skill acquisition facility in Yobe State. Danjuma is one of the country’s wealthiest individuals and a major investor on the Nigerian Exchange.

The center is one of nine under construction in the Gujba, Gulani, and Fika local government regions. It intends to train unemployed youngsters in skills such as computer training, tailoring, electrical work, welding, and carpentry.

The endeavor is part of the organization’s post-insurgency recovery efforts and is significant given the state’s current state of peace. Danjuma stressed the relevance of these facilities in providing young people with practical skills for employment and self-sufficiency.

According to Professor Nana Tanko, executive director of VSF, the centers will help women, youth, and other community members while also encouraging sustainability and economic progress. She emphasized VSF’s continued assistance for the Northeast region since 2014 through a variety of interventions, including instructional materials, savings and loan organizations, and grants to help women expand their enterprises.

“The inauguration of this acquisition center in Kukargadu marks the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of the beneficiaries and VSF’s commitment to supporting the Northeast region’s recovery and development,” Tanko stated.

Danjuma, the founder of South Atlantic Petroleum, a renowned oil exploration company, has long been involved in humanitarian initiatives. Aside from his wide commercial holdings, he is known for his dedication to community development.

According to HowNG, Danjuma established the Daisy Danjuma Eye Hospital in Takum, Taraba State, in February. The institution, overseen by the 85-year-old retired lieutenant general, demonstrates his commitment to addressing health challenges, particularly vision impairments.

The Daisy Danjuma Eye Hospital follows the establishment of the Goodwill Medical Center (GMC) in Enugu State by the TY Danjuma Foundation. This contemporary medical center, which is entirely funded by Danjuma’s philanthropic foundation, intends to significantly increase healthcare access for the poor, demonstrating Danjuma’s continued dedication to humanitarian issues.

Danjuma is noted for his unwavering dedication to community development. He donated $1.36 million to the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan (CoMUI), setting a new philanthropic milestone for the country.
