She called on women to find a way to be productive by engaging in small scale businesses to support their husbands’ income.

According to her, the gesture will allow the husbands to concentrate on the task of keeping the nation safe and secured.

She also called on them to take the skills acquisition programme with seriousness as the centre had though been in existence, but was not functioning until now.

Salamatu also commended the Commander, 3-Brigade Kano, Maj-Gen Bamidele Ali-Alabi and his wife, Mrs Sikirat Alabi for ensuring the revival of the centre.

She also visited and donated food items to some widows as part of NAOWA’s efforts to ensure their well-being.

According to her, the donation was aimed at easing any kind of challenges the widows are facing due to the absence of their husbands.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the skills acquisition centre, located inside the Bukavu Barracks will provide tailoring, bakery and other various skills training to the women. (NAN)
