The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) FCT 1 has concluded plans to empower some youths in the FCT with cooking skills that would enable them become self-employed in the lucrative hospitality industry.
Pastor Godwin Idoje of the Offspring of David Parish of the church disclosed this today while speaking with our reporter on the church’s readiness for the third edition of the church’s annual youths cooking competition billed for September 20 in Abuja.
“This competition was born out of concern based on the trends of events noticed among our youths. We believe that the ability to cook well will contribute to the well-being of the family while making them self-reliant also,” he said.
Idoje noted that it was worrisome that many youths in this modern age especially young women don’t know how to cook.
He said the competition was also borne out of a need to ensure that upon marriage, families are assured of properly cooked and balanced meals, adding that this year’s competition will be held in collaboration with Chef Academy and Kyom NOM electronics.
“More so, good meals at home would prevent people from eating bad or contaminated meals outside and children will be well nourished and that’s why we started this programme,” Idoje said.
Also speaking at the event, Daniel Okiodike of Dechef’s Kitchen said that irrespective of gender, youths seeking employment but have very good culinary skills could be self-employed.
“Food is very important to human existence and it is something we cannot do without; so you must know how to cook. Once you know how to cook very good delicacies, you’ll see that you can even turn it into a very good business and be self employed,” he said.
A three-time winner of a cooking award himself, Okiodike said culinary skills were a form of youth empowerment.
He advised Nigerian youths to see cooking as a lucrative business and shouldn’t be constrained to doing it just for pleasure.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
