Katsina - Alhaji Sule Kuki, the special adviser on science and technology to Governor Ibrahim Shema of Katsina State, said that an information and communications technology (ICT) and business institute planned for the state would cost N500 million.

On Monday Kuki said the money would take care of the second phase of the ICT and business institute projects in Katsina.

He said that the second phase of the project, awarded to Hajaik Construction Nig. Ltd, comprised a four-storey building, classroom blocks and four workshops for the business institute.

The special adviser said that the construction of the lecture room and auditorium of the institute was awarded at a cost of N388.6 million.

He said the memorandum of understanding for the establishment of the institute between the government and the National Board for Technical Incubation Abuja was in progress.

"The second phase of the project will soon take off, as the site had been allocated along Dutsinma-Kano Road in the metropolis,’’ Kuki said.

He noted that the establishment of the institute would boost technology and business skills among the teeming youths in  the state.

The state government awarded the first phase of the project at  a cost of N964.3 million in December 2012.
