The Kebbi State Government has said it would train 300 solar energy technicians to boost renewable energy use in the state.

The Commissioner for Special Duties, Barrister Attahiru Maccido during the flag-off ceremony for the in-house training for the first batch of the selected youths explained that the training was in collaboration with a company in the United States of America for a period of 10 weeks.

He said the selected 300 youths comprising of 150 young girls and 150 young boys would be under the tutelage of the US company by February next year for the training.

"Before the arrival of the US company that would fully train the youths, an in-house training has been arranged to equip them with computer and the necessary basic skills to make their training easier.

"The future is already here. We are partnering with the solar energy department at Usmanu Danfodio University, Sokoto.

"The Governor is working hard to ensure that we start producing our solar panels and other accessories", the commissioner said.

The Special Adviser to the Governor on Power, Alhaji Yusuf Haruna Rasheed urged the participants to be dedicated to the training, saying that, it was a training that required serious attention and concentration.

He said "As women, we deem it necessary to start with you because you are the bedrock of the society. 

" When women are productive and are contributing to the societal development, surely, the sky is the limit for that society as far as development is concerned".
