Published on

Kutigi skills acquisition centre has being commissioned today by a Former Senator representing Niger South Senatorial Zone in the 9th National Assembly (Zone A)

Muhammad Bima Enagi. While speaking during the occasion, he said 5 of such centres were established by him across the Senatorial zone, at Enagi, Lemu, Badeggi, Agaei and Kutigi respectively, but only that of Kutigi now functional and commissioned, he, therefore, commended  Ameena Company for taking a bold step to manage and run the Centre and urge other Local Governments to emulate the kind gesture.

Sen. Bima said earlier on, 3 ICT centres established by him at Lapai, Bida and Mokwa Local Governments were poorly managed by the Local Governments Councils, hence the need for Private partnerships to run the centres effectively. He promised his continued support for the centre and that he would ensure that the contractor supplied and installed the remaining equipment.

In a keynote address, the Chairman of Ameena Company and also the Board of Trustees Chairman of the Centre, Hon. Abubakar Dawuda Kutigi, (Ndeiji Kutigi) commended Senator Bima for establishing and releasing the Centre to the Company.

He said the centre is established to train youths on skills acquisition to be self-reliant and to encourage them to learn local handcraft to avoid extinction. The B.O.T Chairman said youths would be taught bead making, handbags, charcoal production, pieces of jewellery, tie and dye. Others include Mat, hat and Local hand fan weaving, cloth looming, maize sheath works, tailoring, pottery clay work and computer training. He called for support on some of the challenges faced by the centre which include, sponsorship of candidates, security, Generating sets/ Solar power inverters, air conditioners and more equipment to accommodate more trainees.

The Ezanuwan Kutigi, His Highness Alh. Muhammad Kudu Ibrahim who is the royal father of the day expressed his delight

for the laudable project established in his domain and charged other Political office holders and well-to-do individuals to emulate Sen. Bima and Ameena Company to keep our youths busy and self-employed.

Goodwill messages were delivered by representatives of Lavun Local Government Council Chairman Hon. Isah Mohammed, represented by Lavun A.P.C Chairman Alh. Idris Saba Jipan, Hakimi Kutigi and Marafan Rabba Nupe, Alh. Yusuf Ndagi Aliyu and Former Chairman Edati Local Government Council Hon. Zubairu Isah Nagya.
