This is even as IETA poised to empower no fewer than 200 women on entrepreneur skill that remain economic development of every community stressing that no society could develop without entrepreneurial skills.

Chairman Board of Trustee IETA, Engr. Maxwell Esan disclosed this at the press conference recently in Abuja ahead forthcoming of women of titan conference slated for 12th to 13th of December 2014, with the theme: “the voice of women must be heard.”

He said: "IETA is known as initiatives fur entrepreneurship and talent advancement that focus is to strengthen entrepreneur drive and also discover talent that can showcase the fundamental of Nigeria

“For the next three years IETA is targeting 15,000 thousand and if we don't make 15,000 the least we can make 10,000 Nigerian youth self-reliance.

“it is not going to be level of empowerment that you might be expecting like the normal political empowerment of distributing rice or thereabout, I don't believe in the school of thought that is distributing grinding machine or distributing Okada or rice to me: that is poverty enhancement not poverty alleviation. I believe in giving you something that can put money on your table constantly and to be able to build future for yourself.

“When people hear empowerment what come to their mind is that they are giving people money. I want to correct that impression, we didn’t empower with cash, the cash empowerment will come next year

“Very soon we are starting football competition for youths so that talent will be discovered, talent discovery of comedians, there would be talent discovery in the area of music. We shall promote anybody that we discover.

“However, the notable foundations in the Nigeria today, be it Tony Elemelu Foundation, Dangote group of companies, Globacom, big foundations across the globe, they started somewhere and I believe that IETA will surpass its contemporary I will do everything within my power and with God to put lETA on the global map.

On his remark, the President of the IETA Mr Joe Pax stated that the NGO had trained over 1000 women and youths in Nigeria in different acquisition skills for self-reliance across the country and make it able for them to fit into the recent job vacancies in Nigeria or stand on there own.

“We have also as a non-profitable organisation, provided consultancy services in term of business advice, mentorship, carry out visibility studies for individual, corporate organisations.

"And in doing that we have a lined up of activities to carry out in between 2015 to 2017. Our NGO is towards creating platform for women and youths essentially and so what we are going to do is creating platform to further strengthen the economic main-brain of our great country
