Kano state government is to recruit 1,000 female holders of National Certificate of Education (NCE) to teach in public primary schools across the state.

The state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, stated this at the graduation of 500 women who were trained in various skills acquisition under the Ganduje Kanawa Economic Empowerment Initiative, a programme promoted by Hajiya Binta Sani Danmaijuju and supported by Kano state government.

Ganduje said already, females with such qualification had been directed to submit their credentials to their respective local governments of origin for authentication.

He stated that Kano state government would soon enlist many youthful women for training on auto mechanics and allied areas at Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Training Center, Kaduna.

Governor Ganduje maintained that the move was part of strategies to give women the skills and confidence to be self-employed, maintain comfortable lifestyles, and standardize homes for themselves and their children.

He recalled that about two weeks ago, the state government recruited many females among its new tax officers, while many empowerment programmes have been initiated for various categories of women in the state in the past 21 months.

“Women empowerment helps women to stand on their own legs, become independent and earn for their family which stimulates the economy. To empower a woman means to reduce poverty Sometimes, the money earned by the husband is not sufficient to meet the demands of the family. The added earnings of women help the family to address some challenges affecting the family,” he said.

The governor, who thanked Hajiya Binta for initiating the empowerment programme, assuring that government, would continue to support the less privileged women through the initiative.

The initiator of the initiative, Hajiya Binta Sani Danmaijuju, said the 500 beneficiaries were trained for three weeks on Bed sheet making, Beads and Jewelry design, Hair dressing, Cosmetics making, Photography, soap making and Video coverage among others.  (Daily Trust)
