Dr. Daniel Musa, Permanent Secretary, state Ministry of Youth Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Wednesday that the amount was for the trainees’ tuition fees and upkeep allowances.

He said the trainees left Gombe for Abuja on Tuesday for the training.

According to him, the engineers would be trained in power generation, transmission and distribution for the period of nine months.

Musa said the government obtained 15 slots for the state in the NAPTIN training.

He said the trainees were identified from the data bank in the ministry where list of graduates were collated.

Musa further stated that after the training, the beneficiaries would be posted to any state by the Federal Government to work.

“All we want is to fill our quota in the power sector; currently Gombe State representation in the power sector is very low,” he said.

Musa appealed to the trainees to be good ambassadors of the state while in Abuja as well as utilise the opportunity given to them.(NAN)
