Speaking at the opening ceremony on Friday at Camp Lavet in Jalingo, the state Coordinator, Mr. Christopher Bamsida, said the participants were recruited under the Special Public Works Department of the NDE, aimed at reducing unemployment in the state.

Mr. Bamsida explained that the scheme was designed to train employed school leavers in plaster of Paris (POP), and hard and soft landscaping, leading to the acquisition of skills in erosion control, environmental beautification protection, and sanitation.

According to him, the environmental beautification training scheme is aimed at showcasing the resilience of youth who are making strides in various fields.

He emphasized that the agency recognized the potential of vibrant youths and was dedicated to providing them with the skills needed to build a prosperous and sustainable future.

Mr. Christopher Bamsida stressed the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills, abilities, understanding, and work habits necessary for gainful employment and entrepreneurship.

He pointed out that the choices of these skill sets were deliberate attempts at making an impact in the global system.

Mr. Bamsida urged the trainees to concentrate and acquire the skills, as this would enable them to become relevant decision-makers in the economy of life.

Additionally, Mr. Christopher Bamsida called on well-meaning individuals, organizations, and government at all levels to support NDE’s efforts to reduce unemployment in the country.

He expressed gratitude to the Taraba state Governor, Dr. Agbu Kefas, for creating a conducive environment for the Directorate to thrive in the state.

In his remarks, the Head of the Department of Small Skills Enterprise, Usman Bwala advised participants to take advantage of the training, urging them not to let the Federal government down.

Mr. Solomon Rimamnyang thanked the federal government and NDE for allowing them to receive training in such skills, promising on behalf of the beneficiaries not to fail the federal government in its efforts to add value to the labor market.

The two warring tribes, Ichen and Chamba Dakka in Bissaula, Kurmi Local Government Area of Taraba State, have been advised to let go of bitterness and embrace each other for the sake of peace and development.

The Chairman of Kurmi Local Government Council, Moses Maihankali advised in an interview in Jalingo. 

He said the reconciliation process is ongoing to bring the two warring parties together to foster permanent peace and stability in the community. 

Maihankali stated that his administration is committed to supporting Governor Agbu Kefes’s five-point agenda to ensure the peace and security of the citizens.

The chairman said that even though he inherited the long-standing communal crises, he assured that he would explore all necessary strategies to establish lasting peace and stability between the two tribes. 

He revealed that he had already held separate reconciliatory meetings with the Chamba Dakka and the Ichen communities to discuss the need to reconcile the two ethnic groups for peace and unity. 

Moses Maihankali explained that these discussions have yielded positive results and plans are underway to invite the groups to Baissa to bring both parties together for reconciliation. 

This will be followed by warm receptions and celebrations before facilitating their official relocation to the Bissaula community for the final settlement in their homes.

He noted that following the displacement of people from the community, bandits took advantage of the area to carry out nefarious activities, but said the situation had been brought under control. 

The chairman called on the warring residents to forgive one another and forget the past to complement Governor Agbu Kefes’s peace initiative and allow development to thrive.

It should be recalled that the prolonged crises in Bissaula, which displaced the entire community for about three years, started as a result of the chieftaincy tussle between Ichen and the Chamba Dakka.
