Abuja - Nine youngsters from the Degema Local Government Area of the Rivers State have completed a Graduate Engineering professional course thanks to a gesture of goodwill by Deputy Governor, Ipalibo Harry Banigo.

Banigo said the training was in line with fulfillment of her electioneering promise to develop the capacity of youths in the area.

She said the training was designed to equip the young engineering graduates with necessary skills that would enable them to be gainfully employed and contribute their quota to societal growth.

Receiving the Trainees who were on a visit to congratulate her on her appointment, in Government House, Port Harcourt, Banigo expressed satisfaction over the performance of the trainees and assured that she would assist some of them in securing job in public and private establishments.

“The training was to enhance the engineering skill of the youths and give them greater career opportunities,” Banigo said.

She urged the beneficiaries to make the best use of the skills acquired during the programme and commended them for taking the training seriously.

Banigo called on other youths in the state to emulate the fighting spirit of the graduates.

“I have no doubt that with the certificate, you will get employment and be beneficial to society,” Banigo said.

Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Diyedimbo Gillis Harry, thanked the Deputy Governor for the opportunity given them to excel in their chosen profession.

He said they were in her office to present their certificates and appreciates her for the sponsorship.
