Katsina, Feb. 3, 2021 Katsina State Government has pledged to continue supporting youths to learn different skills in order to enhance their employment, Alhaji Mustapha Inuwa, Secretary to the State Government (SSG) has said.
Speaking on Tuesday, in Katsina, at the graduation ceremony of 510 female youths from some selected Local Governments of the state, Inuwa reiterated that the state government, under Gov. Aminu Masari, was committed to supporting youths, with necessary tools and incentives, in their skill acquisition pursuits.
“Educating or training of women is like educating or training the whole society. This is because the women are our mothers and they can step down what they learnt to their children’’, Inuwa said.
The training was organised by the Katsina Amalgamated Youth Entrepreneurs’ Development Corporate Union (KAYEDCO).
He commended KAYEDCO for the initiative, noting that the gesture would be of great value to the youths and also the society in general.
He urged the youths and civil servants in the state to endeavour to learn a trade beside their work.
