There is no issue that should be addressed as a matter of urgent national importance than that of skills acquisition by the youth, considering the failure of our basic education to yield the expected positive result with its attendant consequences such as armed robbery, kidnapping, and host of others.

This paper discusses the importance of skill acquisition in national development and suggests ways it can be encouraged in the country.

According to Encerta Dictionary (2009), a skill is seen as the ability to do something well, usually gained through training or experience.

Skill acquisition and generation of employment have remained a constant factor in Nigeria Government policy. The National Youth Employment and skills acquisition programme was initiated by the Government to promote self-employment and self-reliance in the generation of gainful self-employment.
