NYSC ZONAL SKILLS CENTRE REACHES COMPLETION STAGE IN GOMBE
The construction of the NYSC North East Zonal Integrated Skills Acquisition Centre has reached completion stage in Gombe, the Gombe State capital.
The project, which is a product of a public-private partnership, is part of the present NYSC Management’s strategies to make its Skills Acquisition and Entrepreneurship Development programme (SAED) more functional.
NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, visited the facility today to assess the quality of work.
He was taken round various sections by the Gombe State Coordinator, Mr. Tobias Ibeh.
Sections that have already been completed include an administrative block, training workshops for various skills, forty-four-room males hostel, twenty-two-room female hostel, and a trainers hostel.
Other completed sections include a cafeteria, which doubles as multi-purpose hall, and security house.
The centre also has perimeter fence to enhance security.
Speaking to newsmen after the inspection, Kazaure expressed satisfaction with the quality of work done on the facility.
He noted that the aspects remaining were external works, and went on to appeal to the Gombe State Government to assist in carrying out the works.
The Director-General, who reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to consolidating on the gains of the SAED programme, said Corps members would be admitted in batches for training at the centre.
