Sen Iya Abbas Seeks Conversion of NCC Structure in Yola to Skills Centre


The Senator Representing Adamawa Central District, Aminu Iya Abbas, has pledged to lobby for the conversion of the Nigeria Communications Commission (NCC) structure located along Yola- Fufore road to a skills acquisition centre for youths.

The senator says such a centre will equip youths with needed skills to become self-reliant.

Aside the training centre, the senator disclosed that the Senate is impressing on the Federal Government to implement food stamp programme where citizens will be issued with identity cards so that they can collect food free of charge.

Sen. Iya Abbas, who made the pledge while speaking to newsmen in Yola, said that he is determined to follow necessary steps towards the conversion of the structure to a training center for unemployed youths.

He explained that the centre will train both educated and uneducated youths in relevant skills and be given stipends to enable them set up their own small scale businesses.

“We are ready to do everything possible that will better the lives of our electorate. The welfare of my electorate is my primary concern, and I am ready to voice out their concern”, said Iya Abbas.

He said that they were voted by the people at the grassroots, and that their welfare should be accorded topmost priority, adding that every motion he intends to sponsor should have direct bearing on the lives of his electorate.

He said that what Nigerians need at the moment is any programme that will ease economic hardship that they experience on daily basis.

He said he is ready to do everything possible to ameliorate the suffering of the masses and urged the general public to pray for them and country in general for peace and stability.
