The Kano state government says that it has trained 10, 000 indigenes across the state on how to bring suya production and sales to meet international standard
Speaking at the Kano Special Day edition at the on-going Abuja Centenary Trade Fair, the state governor, Dr. Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, who was represented by the Commissioner, Ministry of Commerce Industry, Cooperatives and Tourism, Dr. Danburam Abubakar noted that the state has created certain institutions to bridge skills gap.
“We have created 23 institutions, because we realized that not everybody can go to school. We train the youths and empower them to start up something meaningful”.
He added that the administration was doing its best to boost education. “We knew at the start of this administration that there are certain areas where there were deficiencies and we needed to bridge those gaps. We focused on education. We started complete free education; with food and uniforms.
“We are also undertaking French education for our pupils, even from the grassroots, through the creation of a boarding secondary school in Niger as collaboration between the state and Republic of Niger. We have created, as well, the first Chinese school in Nigeria”.
