Declaring the training session open, the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Umar Farougq said that the N-Skills programme targets marginalized and disadvantaged population, including those with primary or no-formal education.

The Minister who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry Mr Bashir Nura Alkali stated that the 37 Master Trainers will later coordinate the training of 6,475 youths selected from the 36 States and FCT.

The Ministry worked with experienced training service providers to carefully select those to be trained today as Master Trainers. We expect these Master Trainers to effectively play their role of coordinating the training of the target beneficiaries of the N-Skills programme in their respective States and FCT. We target market places and other informal places as well as the streets.

The essence of training the Master Trainers is to ensure that they get it right from the foundation. They have to know the entrepreneurial skills as well as life skills so that when they go back to the grassroots, they will be able to impart what they have been taught.

Upon completion of the training, the target beneficiaries will be provided with Start-up Kits.

  1. The fact still remain the the same.. most of these programs is being design to favour only the Elite's and their families. Can someone tell how much those in the ministries earn per month?? Of course not, why because there's no clear definition of of most of the program's. Where are the 500,000 youths that were commonly being given 30,000 as their stipend now? At the streets while the Ministers are there enjoying their cool money from the nation wealth and they kept on telling us that there's no money to pay the youths continuesly. Why can't they stop their salary too??. God will judge everyone accordingly.

  2. What is the way forward on nexit packages, or does that mean the youths can't be hopeful on her mother land.
