HuaweiABUJA – A partnership between the Office of the Special  Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Affairs and leading global  solutions provider, Huawei Technologies, is set to empower some 1 000  youths in information and communications technology.

The two organisations have announced the partnership to initiate a social  development programme.

The initiative which would be overseen by the Special Assistant to the President on Youth and Student Affairs, Nasir Adhama, would commence at a  date to be announced soon.

The Presidential aide said that his office would select and screen the  beneficiary participants from all geopolitical zones of the country for  the training.

Out of the 1 000 youths that would be trained by Huawei Africa, 200 would  be sent to China for more training on ICT.

“There are many programmes and activities that would get our youths  engaged and involved, especially our brothers and sisters in Niger Delta  and North East who will also benefit from the Huawei partnership programme,” said Adhama.

We strongly seek for the cooperation and supports of all Nigerian youths  from the nook and cranny of the federation to move our nation forward,” he  added.

The partnership follows a recent visit by the Special Assistant to China where he met the leaders of the telecommunication company on the proposed  ICT programme.

Huawei, which is one of the global brands in ICT, would also establish a world class ICT centre in Nigeria to create more opportunities for  Nigerian youths.
