The Managing Director of Abuja Enterprise Agency (AEA), Muhammad Tukur Arabi has pledged to partner with the Chairman of Gwagwalada Area Council, Adamu Danze to train the youths of the Council in various skills and empower them in their endeavors.

Arabi made this pledge when he paid a courtesy call on the Chairman in his office last week with the Management team of AEA. He said, “There is no person that cannot learn a skill. If you sponsor the youths for our trainings, we will train them and after that, we will empower them, they will never come to you again for stipends,” he said.

Responding, The Chairman, Adamu Danze, emphasised the need for young people to acquire skills.

“In Nigeria today, the highest gift you can give somebody is to train him or her to have a skill and be established on his or her own.  That is the highest gift you can give,” he said. 

He added that it was the responsibility of the council to take care of its youths and that he was glad that they had found an agency that would partner with them to harness the potentials of their youth.

The MD also thanked the Chairman for providing an office space for the Agency to use as the Gwagwalada liaison office of Abuja Enterprise Agency, adding that it has brought skills acquisition and empowerment closer to the people of Gwagwalada area council.
