During the visit, the EVC, who was accompanied by the NCC’s Head of Projects, Philip Eretan, and the EVC’s Chief of Staff, Malam Hafiz Shehu, among others, with the Special Adviser to the Kano State Governor, Prof. Yusif Alhassan, in attendance, urged the contractors to expedite their efforts in order to complete the project on time.

Danbatta, speaking to the contractors, stated that both the Federal and State governments are closely monitoring the building site’s progress due to the project’s contribution to the economy of the North-West geopolitical zone and the nation as a whole.

The Federal Government and the State government are following it with keen interest, and at NCC, our responsibility is to ensure that there’s no further delay in delivery as we have been doing everything possible to ensure that we have the project commissioned in the next few months.NYSC portal

“While I promise you that we will give you all the support you need, I also demand that progress report to be sent to me fortnightly over the two months period in order to ensure effective monitoring by us at NCC,” he said.

The EVC went on to thank the State Governor for providing land in a great position in Kano for the project, which he said is an indicator of the importance the government places on the endeavor.

This is not the first time that the head of the NCC will visit the construction site of the project, which is located at the Audu Bako Secretariat in the ancient city that serves as the commercial hub of northern Nigeria.

The EVC’s most recent visit to the construction site was a follow-up to similar visits he made to the site in July 2022 and much earlier, primarily to examine the degree of work that has been completed thus far in order to ensure that the project is completed by the deadline.

During a visit to the construction site in July 2022, Danbatta stated that the project was conceived to support the Federal Government’s digital drive by facilitating the availability and accessibility of digital services across the nation, promoting their adoption and usage across all sectors, and providing youth employment in the nation.

“The idea of putting these two things (i.e., skill acquisition and innovation) at the forefront of this very important initiative is to produce youths that can be self-reliant, generate employment for themselves and other Nigerians,” he said.

Additionally, Danbatta emphasized that no region of the nation would be excluded from the initiative’s benefits.

“The project is another move to boost youth digital skills acquisition, promote innovations, provide jobs for the teeming Nigerian youth and ultimately support the overall digital economy agenda of the Federal Government,” he said.JAMB Result
