Kano – Engr Rabi’u Haruna, the Chairman, Kano State Chapter of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE), has described telecommunication as a catalyst for Economic development in the country.
Haruna stated this on Monday in Kano during a one day sensitisation workshop organised by the Kano branch of the Nigerian Institution of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, (NIEEE).
According to him, the workshop was aimed at impacting knowledge to members of the engineering profession in the state to ensure the development of the country.
He added that the role of Telecommunications in boosting the country’s economy can not be overemphasised.
The NSE boss therefore reaffirmed the association’s commitment toward uplifting the engineering profession in the state in particular and the country at large.
Haruna called on the general public to always monitor the activities of vandals in their areas and immediately report them to the nearest security agents for prompt action.
The Chairman also called on the public to always consider telecommunication companies as partners in progress.
In a remark, the chairman of the NIEEE, Mr. Emmanuel Akinwole urged the participants to utilise the knowledge they acquired during the workshop to improve the country’s telecommunications system. (NAN)
