Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari will soon be invited for a second time to come and commission an ultra modern skills acquisition centre built by the state government at the cost of N1bn with N3.5bn equipment to ensure professionalism.
Ganduje dropped the hint yesterday at the Open Air Theatre at the Government House when he distributed some items to the teeming youths trained on the platform of its empowerment programme.
The Governor also distributed tyres and cartons of engine oil to 2250 tricycle operators and 250 trycle mechanics who were trained by DAG BAJAJ engineering company on modern tricycle repairs and services, promised that his government will continue to empower the youths in the state to become self-reliant.
He said the beneficiaries who received two tricycle tyres each, including engine oil, “can now do their jobs with high sense of professionalism and responsibility. “
He further stated that this is part of his empowerment programme to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the state.
“We have found gray areas in the automobile sector. Last year, 72 youths graduated from PAN in Kaduna. They are now doing well, fending for themselves and their families.
“Currently, 150 youths-100 boys and 50 girls, are also undergoing one year automobile training at PAN. When they are through, we will establish workshops and buy tools for them to begin their own businesses, just like we did to the 72 who passed out last year,” he stated.
Ganduje spoke on the N65 billion Kano Economic City being handled by private developers, noting that; “ already, we have paid N1 billion compensation to owners of the land. We are also upgrading Kantin Kwari textile market to a modern standard.”
He said they would ensure maximum security in all the existing markets in the state. “We are providing modern facilities so that traders can transact their businesses in a conducive environment.”
