The Proprietress of Opral Benson Beauty Training Institute (OBBTI), Chief (Dr.) Opral Mason Benson has called on the three tiers of government to pay attention to the beauty sector as part of the nation’s economic diversification programme.

Delivering an address at the 33rd graduation ceremony of the institute in Lagos recently, she advised governments at all levels of administration to tap into the enormous potential offered by the beauty industry, saying that it is capable of generating huge foreign exchange if properly harnessed.

The foremost beautician emphasized that Nigerians spend huge sums of money on beauty products and services, hence the need for the government to explore the sector for revenue generation.

According to her, statistics have shown that by 2021, the industry will be worth over N35 billion through the distribution of beauty products and other related materials through branding, marketing and other businesses.

To this end, she urged federal and state governments to assist the industry through the provision of loans and grants to practitioners to enable them to acquire state-of-the-art equipment and other facilities.

She promised to sustain the standard of the institute that was established in 1985 to empower youths for professional development and self-employment.

The guest speaker, Mrs. Omolara Erogbogbo, the Executive Secretary, Lagos State Technical and Vocational Education Board (LASTVEB) charged Nigerian youths to avail themselves of the unique opportunities offered by the centre to be self-employed as well as become an employer of labour.

OBBTI is approved by both the federal and state governments and also serves as an accredited centre for City and Guilds London for professional examinations in cosmetology and other allied professions.

Dignitaries present at the ceremony include Chief Kessignton Adebutu, the Asoju Oba of Lagos; Mrs. Margret Murray-Bruce; Honourable Elisha Attai among others.
