A group of corps members serving in Yobe State has taken it upon themselves to organize a free one-month computer training to be received by two hundred and twenty-seven (227) less privileged and orphans of the state.
During the graduation ceremony of the beneficiaries, the head of the group Dahiru Abdu said the aim of the training was to create and increase the capacity of the vulnerable group on Information Communication Technologies (ICT) for the development of the society.
“The training is also in a bid to challenge the youth to become active citizens in performing their social responsibilities in Yobe state alongside the bid to make them ICT conscious and economically independent,” he said during the ceremony.
According to him, he said they are dedicated to finding amicable answers to the societal predicaments by adding to the work of ICT vocational entrepreneurship and community development.
During the one month program, the beneficiaries were taught comprehensively on computer appreciation, data processing and information technology, English Language proficiency as well as JAMB computer-based test training.
“During the training, we have encountered so many problems in the process of delivering our development training and these problems range from lack of good generating sets, inadequate computers, electric regulators, projectors among others,” Abdu disclosed.
While at the ceremony, the former Yobe State Deputy Governor, Alhaji Saleh Aliyu Bagare awarded Fatima Umar a free scholarship to study in any University of her choice in Nigeria as the best graduating student.
In addition, guests who attended the occasion donated 24 computer sets, one power generating set and a sum of N200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Naira) to the group.
