He said, “We are optimistic that the programme would go a long way in putting participants on the right pedestals of becoming self-employed and even employers of labour. We urge participants to be attentive to the course contents to maximally benefits from them”.

Malam Abubakar Nuhu Fikpo disclosed that a total of 1,850 beneficiaries were simultaneously involved in the training in all the 36 states of the federation including Abuja.
