Kano state Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Gan­duje, at the weekend, announced plans by his admin­istration to recruit female hold­ers of the National Certificate of Education (NCE) to teach in public primary schools across the state.

Ganduje made this known during the graduation of 500 women trained under the aus­pices of Gandujen Kanawa Economic Empowerment Initiative, promoted by a phi­lanthropist, Hajiya Binta Sani Danmaijuju and supported by the state government. He stated that already, “females with such qualification have been direct­ed to submit their credentials to their local governments of origin for authentication.”

He further stated that the ad­ministration would soon enlist youthful women for training on auto mechanics and allied areas, alongside their male counterparts, at Peugeot Auto­mobile Nigeria Training Cen­ter, Kaduna.

Governor Ganduje main­tained that the measure is part of strategies to give them the skills and confidence necessary to be self-employed, “maintain more 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 also to 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 the issue of poverty,” he stated.

The governor, therefore, thanked Hajiya Binta Sani Danmaijuju for initiating the empowerment programme for women, assuring that the government would continue to support her towards giving hope to less privileged women.

In her remarks, the initiator of the Gandujen Kanawa Eco­nomic Empowerment 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.

Highlights of the occasion include the presentation of N10,000 to each of the artisans, by the Kano state government as well as an exhibition of wares and products made by ben­eficiaries of the empowerment programme.
