Bello said the importance of the gas pipeline project cannot be overemphasized, saying, when completed, AKK will provide the desirous stimulus to domestic industrial growth and boost domestic energy infrastructure.

“So I once again commend Mr President for giving hope and confidence to our local companies; he is surely replicating the revolution in agriculture in the Energy infrastructure of the nation.

According to the governor, some of the country’s long term economic aspirations cannot be achieved if the necessary manpower and technical know-how are inadequate, adding that “as a government, we will continue to do our best to engage our youth in vocational training and skill acquisition programmes”.
