He advised the youth to take advantage of the facility by enrolling to develop their skills and expertise for self-employment.

Mr Iddrisu Mohammed Saani, Karaga District Chief Executive, who received the keys to the facility on behalf of the people, commended the GNPC Foundation for its continued support towards the development of the area.
