Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed plans to train repentant internet fraudsters otherwise called ‘yahoo boys’ on advanced Information and Communication Technology as well as other vocational skills in his proposed technology park in the state.
The Punch reports that Obaseki, who is seeking reelection on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in the September 19 governorship election in the state, made this known at a rally on Friday.
He said, “I will train young boys who do ‘yahoo’ to work in our technology park. We will train them and ensure they become more useful to society.”
Obaseki added that he has kept fate with residents of Egor Local Government Area, following the reconstruction of the Benin Technical College now Government Science and Technical College.

The PDP candidate promised to channel 50MW of energy from the Independent Power Plant at Ihovbor near Azura, in the Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of the state to the remodelled technical college through Ikpoba Hill, which, according to him, will help to put idle hands to work and create employment opportunities for youths in the state.
He added, “We have executed over 2000 projects in Edo in the past four years. So, when they say that Obaseki has done nothing in the past four years, it is a lie.”
