Ms. Hajia Shani Mahama, while highlighting the importance of commentary education thus urged the management of CEA to ensure that the items are put to good use.

The MASLOC CEO, also revealed that her outfit is putting up a skills training centre within the Yendi municipality, to enhance skills development in the area.
“This is just the beginning. The bigger one is the skills centre that I have set up in Yendi municipality and that skills development centre is going to take care of fashion and garment cosmetology.
