Kaduna State Government has reiterated its commitment to give priority to human capital development.
State Deputy Governor Hadiza Balarabe made the pledge when she received a delegation from Jama’a Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, on a courtesy visit in her office. The delegation was led by Chairman, Board of Trustees, BoT of the Foundation, Bala Adamu.
She explained that human capital development has been one of the major issues the state government takes with seriousness, noting that it is heartwarming that the Foundation also had human capital development component in its programme, which would complement the effort of government.
Hadiza advised the Foundation to encourage youth to develop their skills and be self-reliant, adding that white collar jobs were no longer feasible.
Earlier in his remarks, the BoT Chairman of the Foundation had said their visit was to commend the state government for investing in infrastructure, especially in the three major towns of Kafanchan, Kaduna and Zaria.
He also appreciated Governor Nasir El-Rufai for appointing sons and daughters of Southern Kaduna into various positions in his government.
