The National Social Investment Programme (N-SIP) on Thursday graduated no fewer than 400 beneficiaries of N-power non-graduate category in the North-East.
Speaking during the ceremony in Yola, N-SIP’s National Coordinator, Prof. Umar Bindir, congratulated the beneficiaries for being among those who participated in the three months training.
“This is an initiative and innovations of President Muhammadu Buhari to see that you acquire the skills to be self reliant, successful in life and be employers of labour.
“I am happy to be with you today and encourage you to succeed in life by applying what you have learned in to practice,” he said.
Bindir advised the beneficiaries to also make use of the starter parks given and not to sale them out for any reason.
Mrs Mery Yuwadi, N-SIP’s Focal Person in Adamawa, said that the beneficiaries were trained on life skills, entrepreneurship development, phone and laptop repairs.
She added that all were drawn from Adamawa, Borno, Bauchi, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe States and the training was successful.
Yuwadi also advised the beneficiaries to continue to learn more and put the skills in to practice not to go keep the tools or sold them.
Mr Emmanuel Samuel, a participant from Borno, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries, thanked the Federal Government and Buhari for the opportunity.
He said that the training would impact positively in their life and assured of making judicious use of the tools given to them.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the starter parks include rework stations, digital multimeter, soldering paste, and soldering wire magnifying glass, among others. (NAN)
