“The KNTHC is at the vanguard of encouraging innovation and developing the potential talents of the youths of this great state and Nigeria.
“Partnering with youth is one of the cardinal objectives of His Excellency’s administration. This is why the administration under Aminu Bello Masari has been embarking on several programmes and projects tailored towards improving the living standard of our young men and women.
“For instance, the governor has ordered the immediate employment of all the first class graduates of Umaru Musa Yar Adua University of Katsina State extraction in to the State civil services. The aim is to inject fresh blood in to the services to achieve greater height in terms of quality output”.
He added that another success story recorded with the support of Governor Masari, was the recent collaboration of KNTHC with the National Automotive Design and Development Council (NADDC) where it trained three (3) professional young men and women from Katsina state, in the capacity training on software automotive skill acquisition for identified Nigerians at Sokoto.
“Another area of achievement is in technology where a young man, Kabir Abubkar Kofar Kaura from Katsina Local Government area was identified by KNTHC as one of the talented youth in the state.

This action reinforced the commitment of our young men and women, who are ever ready to stand on their feet’s. That’s why KNTHC is not relenting on its efforts to inspire the youth to overcome adversity, never give up hope, follow their dreams, work hard, do well in school, and much more.

In fact, preparation for the commencement of the building project has reached an advanced stage”, Rafindadi said.
