President Muhammadu Buhari has been commended for his foresight and commitment to the growth and development of the Country.
Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello who gave the commendation on Tuesday in his remarks during the official inauguration of the Ajaokuta- Kaduna- Kano Had Pipeline project, said the commitment of the President is legendary.
Bello said the importance of the project cannot be overemphasized, saying, when completed, AKK will provide the desirous stimulus to domestic industrial growth and boost domestic energy infrastructure.
“I am also glad to know that an indigenous company “Oilserv Limited” is part of the construction of this highly technical energy infrastructure in our country.
“So I once again commend Mr President for giving hope and confidence to our local companies; he is surely replicating the revolution in agriculture in the Energy infrastructure of the nation.
According to the Governor, some of the country’s long term economic aspirations cannot be achieved if the necessary manpower and technical know-how are inadequate, adding that “as a government, we will continue to do our best to engage our youth in vocational training and skill acquisition programmes”.
“In 2018, our administration partnered with a Civil Engineering company specialized in outsourcing, training and management of industrial welders which has successfully trained and equipped hundreds of our youths with adequate theoretical and practical knowledge in metallurgy, welding and fabrication.
“On behalf of the good people of Kogi State, I thank the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari for his untiring effort to see Ajaokuta Steel Company Limited is reactivated. We are committed to agenda of his administration and will continue to pray for God for his wellbeing”, he said.
