Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo on Thursday inaugurated the special training for vulcanisers, tricycle repairers and also inspected the progress of the Solar Power Project at the Abubakar Rimi Market, Sabon Gari, Kano state.

At the inauguration, Osinbajo disclosed that the empowerment of Kano artisans would define Nigeria’s future, describing the programmes as very special for the 21 century vulcanisers and tricycle mechanics and urged the trainees to take it seriously as they would pass on the skills to others in different states of the federation.

“Just listening to the governor, it is very clear that what he has in mind is the plan that will help the future not just the future of Kano state but the future of Nigeria,” he said.

The Vice President also attended the State’s version of the MSMEs Clinic, where he inaugurated the state’s micro, small and medium enterprises clinic for viable enterprises.

The vice president commended Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano for initiating the programmes and for promising to provide tools, funding and workshops after the training, so that every beneficiary could settle in a workshop and carry out his or her duties.

Osinbajo inspected the on-going construction of Zaria Road, Dangi Underpass and Overhead Bridge and the state’s skills acquisition centre.

He also commended the Simba group for the work it had done in the state and for the special programme.

“Let me say to you that this opportunity is a very great one and I want you to take full advantage of it so that when you finish, you can train other people not just in Kano but in every other state of Nigeria. You must then be able to train people because we will send people from Lagos, Anambra, Imo and other states to Kano for special training. I want you to make sure that you take this training seriously so that you can be the trainers of the future,’’ Osinbajo advised.
