The training programme which was officially declared open in Bali Local Government Area and NGADA Special Development Area is meant to empower participants in Welding, Mechanic and Tailoring skills for Six months and Cosmetology for Three days.
Addressing the participants, the Governor’s wife who was represented by her Protocol Officer, Ms. Mairo Tafida said, the programme is meant for Youths, Women, Men, Retirees, and People Living with Disabilities in Bali LGA and NGADA SDA to develop skills that will make them self reliant.
She explained that, the programme is in line with the outcome of a meeting held with the Governor’s wife and stakeholders from the Central Zone adding that, it is the desire of Her Excellency to empower the less privileged in the State to improve on their living conditions.
She further urged the participants to be committed to the training exercise in order to optimally benefit from it as the Trainers have been carefully selected to impact the required skills.
In their separate remarks, the Caretaker Chairman Bali LGA, Hon. Danladi Danfulani Suntai and the Deputy Coordinator, NGADA SDA, Hon. Ishaku Shaka lauded the initiative of the Governor’s wife in ensuring that the less privileged of the State are empowered to be useful to themselves, their families, their Communities and the entire State.
They further charged participants to take advantage of the opportunity granted them to improve on their living condition instead of depending on Government.
The Trainees were thereafter handed over to their Trainers at the various training points.
