NEDC trains 30 stove, briquette fabricators
The North East Development Commission (NEDC) has trained and graduated artisans from the six states of the region on massive fabrication of weather-friendly stove and briquette.
Participants, who were selected from Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Yobe, Borno and Taraba states, converged on Bauchi for the five-day intensive training.
At the closing of the programme on Saturday, Bauchi State Acting Coordinator of NEDC, Ibrahim Bashir, said the 30 beneficiaries from the region had been trained to train others.
“It is expected that these people will be training others in subsequent batches in their respective states. It has already been stated that the NEDC will give them some of the equipment they need to be able to train others in their respective areas of proficiency,” he said.
