Group Urges Taraba Govt To Establish ICT Centres For Youths

A political youth group known as PDP Royal Group has called on Taraba State government to set up Information and Communication Technology (ICT) centres across the state to engage the youths positively.

Coordinator of the group, Mr. Dennis Shima, made the call yesterday in Jalingo, during a press conference.

Shima noted that the establishment of the centres in secondary and tertiary institutions across the state would prepare the youths to brace up to the challenges of the Information Age and reduce the rate of unemployment in the state.

He commended Governor Darius Ishaku for keeping his campaign promises of providing infrastructure to the people of the state, adding that the ongoing construction of Jalingo-Kona road and the 6.5km Takum-Katsina-Ala road in the face of dwindling allocation to the state is an indication that the governor means well for the state.

He said, “We want to appeal to the governor to consider the industrialisation of the state to move Taraba away from overdependence on federal allocation and create jobs for the teeming youths of the state.

“It is our belief that soon, he will consider the provision of social amenities to rural areas of the state. We, therefore, call on the people of the state to give peace a chance and support the governor to succeed”.
