The Edo State Skills Development agency was established by the Edo State Government
to ameliorate the rate of youth unemployment through skills development and job creation,
which will in turn improve the lives of the residents of Edo State. Having commenced in March
2017 as a program under the office of the Governor, it was initially known and referred to as Skill
Development Program now Edojobs. It kick started its activities with a state wide registration of over
100,000 unemployed persons. With the initial target to create 200,000 jobs, which it has since surpassed,
the agency has impacted positively in the skills level and economic wellbeing of residents as well as the State.
