Dr Abdullahi Ganduje has promised to deploy the state’s population to stimulate the economy and ensure growth and development.
“Population can be a liability, but we are making our population an asset, and the best way to make our population to be an asset is by developing skills acquisition among our youth.
“We assure you, we are training you not only for you to work but also to employ others.
“This government is very serious on women empowerment; days are gone when women still rely on meagre resources.
“We want you to be earning good income, it is necessary for women, that is why we are exposing them to all kinds of legitimate trades so as to earn a living.
“Once you are earning good income; it will contribute to peaceful co-existence with your husbands and families and that is what this government is doing.’’
“So we want to break from that, the only way we can do it is to modify our curriculum.
“To see that we have identified the necessary skills we need in our day-to-day activities, so that youth will embrace skills and be trained, that is the only way to ensure sustainability in terms of employment in the country,” he said.
