Sen. Mustapha Bukar (APC-Katsina North) is training 710 youths in Computer and Information Technology (ICT) in Katsina state.
Bukar stated this in Daura at the opening ceremony of the training programme.
He said that the training would be conducted by the Global Plus ICT in collaboration with the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) sponsored by him.
According to him, the beneficiaries will be trained in three months, after which a certificate would be given to each trainee.
He pointed out that the programme would complement the state government efforts at making people of the state computer literate.
“Computer education is regarded as backbone of societal development worldwide, but our youths are left behind in that area,’’ he said.
Besides, Bukar said that the trainees would be empowered with working materials and capital to enable them establish their businesses and become self-reliant after the programme.
He, therefore, charged them to work hard so as to achieve the desired objective.
The lawmaker also disclosed that the Federal Government has captured Sabke and Dallaje irrigation projects in this year’s budget.
He urged people to remain law abiding and continue to pray for peaceful coexistence in the country.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Global Plus ICT, Mr Zahraddeen Danmusa, said that they had already trained more than 816 youths on computer sponsored by the past administration in September 2015.
He urged other politicians to emulate the senator in his efforts of making people of his constituency computer literates.
In his remarks, Youths Leader in the zone, Mr Sani Sule, commended the senator for the training and for assisting the less privileged in the society.
Sule revealed that the legislator had sponsored eye treatment of more than 700 patients and purchased JAMB forms for students.
He urged people to continue to pray for their leaders so as to continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
