The minority whip of the federal house of representatives and member representing Chikun/Kajuru constituency, Rt. Honourable Yakubu Umar Barde has empowered a total of one hundred and fifty  people from his constituency with computer skills under the capacity building training workshop of the member representing the federal constituency at the National Assembly.

The beneficiaries were also given free HP laptop computers, modems, flash drives and other basic accessories were distributed to the participants.

The beneficiaries drawn from all political parties, tribes and religions in the constituency according to the member representing the area at the federal house of representatives, says the gesture was to put people of the area in tune with the global trend of ICT.

“I have taken this as a responsibility by making sure youth in my constituency do not only know how to read and write but also have a formal knowledge of computer application”.

The five days capacity building in ICT according to Hon. Barde was designed with breakfast, lunch and transport money as palliative to motivate participants’ attendance as well as cushion the economic hardship.

Barde who acknowledged the backwardness of his constituency in terms of ICT said training people in the art of computer applications became imperative in view of its importance in human endeavour globally.

He charged beneficiaries to put into use the training they have acquired and advance with time and also resist the temptation of trading the laptops for cash.

In a related development, Barde also provided free medical surgery for one hundred and twenty (120) people suffering from cataract, appendicitis, and other ailments which was carried out in Sabon Tasha, Chikun local government Area of the state.
