Habu Tijjani, the Chairman of TIW in Borno, said the institute was a duly registered organisation and globally recognised to promote best practices in welding and allied technology in the country.
He said the gesture would enhance the production of welders of international standard to encourage the nation’s welding works; adding that the training of local welders would also check the influx of foreign technicians into the country.
“This is in line with the country’s vision to be among the 20 developed countries by the year 2020,” he said. “The institute had planned to key into the realisation of this vision by ensuring that no fewer than 20,000 welders of international standard were trained across the country.”
Tijjani gave assurance that the institute would partner the state government in rebuilding and rehabilitation of communities destroyed by the insurgents.
