400 N-Power beneficiaries graduate after 3-month training in North-East

By Ibrahim Kado, Yola.


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 at the graduation ceremony in Yola, N-SIP National Coordinator, Prof. Umar Bindir, congratulated the beneficiaries for being among those who participated in the three-month training.


“This is an initiative and innovation 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 and putting it into practice,” he said.


Bindir advised the beneficiaries to also make proper use of the starter packs given to them and not to sell the tools for any reason whatsoever.


Mrs Mery Yuwadi, N-SIP’s Focal Person in Adamawa State, said that the beneficiaries were trained in life skills, entrepreneurship development, phone and laptop repairs.


She said that the beneficiaries were drawn from Adamawa, Borno, Bauchi, Gombe, Taraba and Yobe states and their training was successful.


Yuwadi also advised the beneficiaries to continue to learn more and put the skills in to practice, warning them not to go keep the tools or sell them.


Mr Emmanuel Samuel, a participant from Borno, who spoke on behalf of the beneficiaries, thanked the Federal Government and President Buhari for the opportunity.


He said that the training would impact positively on their lives, while assuring that they would make judicious use of the tools given to them.


The starter packs include rework stations, digital multimeter, soldering paste, soldering wire and magnifying glass, among others.
