How STEP Training motivated me outside physiology - Ubani ~ Truth Reporters

By Gertrude Onyekachukwu-Uteh

UBANI FRANK is a STEPreneur trained under the Delta State Government’s Skills Training and Entrepreneurship Programme (STEP) in the 2017/2018 Cycle (Green STEP.)

Frank hails from Aniocha North Local Government Area and was trained in Audio-Visual and Photography.

He holds a BSC in Human Physiology but was unemployed for five years. He was in and out of menial jobs till he got enrolled in the job creation programme and that changed his mind-set and motivated him to realise that he could do other things.

He is the CEO of C.F.O Media Productions, Asaba; some of their services include video coverage, media and events, photography, online digital marketing, production of documentaries, drone services among others.

His zeal to maximize his entrepreneurial ability propelled him to venture into building-interiors decoration (screed-making, 3D panels, paints and painting, tiling, PoP, wall paper designs, making and fixing of window blinds etc.) In his quest to acquire more knowledge, for professionalism and to meet the expectations of his clients, he went into partnership with a firm for further training.

Frank shares his experience, “The trainings I received through job creation programme motivated me to look outside human physiology. It helped me to discover that I have passion for other things. It propelled me to discover the real world of independence and also gave me the vision of becoming an employer of labour.

"Before the training, I had thought that to be an entrepreneur, one must be a billionaire, but I was taught that I could start small. With the starter pack, which I call, ‘the brain factor,’ my prospect is great. Without the training, I would have been on the streets, looking for non-existent white collar jobs. I now give what I have (services) to get what I need (money) and this has added value to my life.”

Scoring the job creation programme 85%, he said, “From application to establishment, I experienced total transparency and a well-organized process. The trainings were superb and sufficient for any man, graduate or non-graduate to prosper. Whoever that does not make it through this programme has his own deficiency.”
