Nigerian singer and entrepreneur Mr Eazi has volunteered to sponsor a number of youths to attend the Decagon software engineering training program to help them change the course of the career.
Mr Eazi recently completed a partnership with Decagon organisers of Nigeria’s top software engineering training program that is designed to help brilliant young Nigerians actualise their dream of becoming software engineers.
The six month training that was opened by decagon will offer applicants accommodation, food, laptops, internet and a monthly stipend followed by an immediate job placement into companies like Access Bank, Sterling Bank and Etranzact after graduating.
The training comes free of charge although applicants are required to have a credible guarantor in order to access the Pay-Later model. Candidates have been asked to apply in time and attend the training programme.
Speaking about the issue, Executive Officer at Decagon, Chika Nwobi said: “For some who do not have access to someone in their family or network to stand in for them, Mr Eazi is providing a lifetime and this is the type of collaboration that will move Nigeria forward.”
“l have always been passionate about helping young people and pushing them to be the best version of themselves. For some of them, their talents naturally align with software engineering. I am happy to support this initiative in the hope that they can support themselves and their families in the future,” said Mr Eazi.
