Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Hon. Bani Lar, Member representing Langtang North/Langtang South Federal Constituency (PDP), in Plateau State, has commissioned Entrepreneurship Centre where the youth in the area will be trained to produce organic fertilizer, football and many other chemical application materials in the area.
The Entrepreneurship Centre was built in collaboration with the National Research Institute for Chemical Technology (NARICT), an agency under the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology.
Also commissioned are one block of 6 Classrooms at Turaki, a Modern Town Hall at Sabon Gida with the state of the art Communication facilities and classroom blocks including administrative block at Government College Pyache, and many others.
Speaking at the event Hon. Beni Lar said as Chairman of the House of Representatives committee on Science and Technology, she thought it wise to establish the Entrepreneur Centre because they have a lot of talented and well educated youths with very few opportunities in the area.
“We have a lot of idle youths around doing nothing. We have all the raw materials resources we just need to harness them and engage the youths so that they can be useful to society. That is why the National Agency for the Research in Chemical Technology was established to train the youths in various Entrepreneurship skills.
“Every young person can be trained to produce organic fertilizer, football, and any sort of chemical technology application like plastic cups, slippers and so on.The equipment for the laboratory is already on the way. My constituency has a lot of Nim trees, they can make soap, medication and so many things from it .
She added that research has shown that they have the best soil here where there are huge deposits of literite and so on, noting that it was also discovered that this is the best place to establish the National Research Institute for Chemical Technology NARICT as the North Central Office for Six states.
Meanwhile the governorship Candidate of the People Democratic Party (PDP) in Plateau State Barr. Caleb Mutfwang while commissioning the projects initiated by Hon. Lar said PDP is the most prepared party in Plateau State and Nigeria to win the forthcoming general elections from top to the bottom.
He said “We are in Langtang North/Langtang South in continuation of our engagement with the people toward the general elections. We also have the privilege and honour to commission several projects that were attracted by Hon. Beni Lar member representing Langtang North/Langtang South federal Constituency.”
The PDP governorship Candidate who was in company of his running mate Mrs. Josephine Piyo and top party officials argued that if elected as the governor of the state, he will ensure good governance, provide quality leadership, the type the people of the state are yearning for.
According to him, “The people of the state will be proud to say this is our governor and I can assure you that peace, industrialization, education and good governance will be the hallmark of my administration.” He said.
Mutfwang and his team also had a town hall meeting with stakeholders in Langtang North/Langtang South ahead of the February 25 presidential election in the state.
