Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has said he wished he had learnt carpentry.
Osinbajo said this while speaking on the sideline of the 60th birthday thanksgiving service of Salami Ololade in Lagos.
He urged children to learn skills outside academics during the holidays.
“It is a long holiday, it is a great time to do something new,” he said.
“Those who like to learn a skill, whatever skill that may be, should learn it. I wished that when I was growing up I learned even carpentry.”
He added that efforts are being made to rescue 6 school children abducted in Epe.
He said “there should be no doubt at all about the commitment of the government in the matter’’.
“I don’t know how many times the governor has spoken to me about this and the inspector-general of Police, the Commissioner of Police, the DSS and even the armed forces,” he said.
“I am sure these children will return as quickly as possible; so, we look forward to their return.”
