By Ozumi Abdul

Centre for information Technology and Development (CITAD) on Thursday concluded the training of inmates in the remand home in Goron Dutse, Kano state on ICT and phone repairs.

The training which lasted for six weeks was segmented into three weeks each, with the first segment dedicated to ICT training and the other for phone repairs.

While speaking, the Deputy Director of CITAD, Ahmad Abdullahi Yakasai, said his organization has been combing the entire country in the bid to bring technological development to bear upon every area of humanity, but however discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined.

Yakasai noted that this informed the reason for his organization’s training of the underaged inmates of the remand home, because the inmates are not enjoying the benefits of ICT.

He said that CITAD finds it imperative to organise a training of such nature to build the capacities of the inmates, adding that unemployment might be the reason why they are in detention.

He exuded the confidence that with the training, the inmates would not only be self employed, but employers of other people when they are freed from detention.

“Well, as you are aware CITAD is a Centre For Information Technology And Development, we aim to use technology to bring development to the people. We have been working around the country, but we later discovered that certain segments of people have been sidelined, not deriving the benefit of technology, and that is the reason we organise this training to build their capacities.

“Also we think that most of them, it might be the issue of unemployment that brought them here. So by the time they leave here, they will be able to stand on their feet and to employ others”, Yakasai said.

On her part, the representative from the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development, Kano state,Hajiya Abdullahi Hafsat expressed her happiness towards the efforts of CITAD, as well as enjoining the beneficiaries to make use of the opportunity when they returned to their various homes.
