The State House Comptroller, Madam Jane Barekye, has advised industrial hub managers currently undergoing a two week leadership training at the National Leadership Institute (NALI) in Kyankwanzi to use the opportunity of their new roles at the hubs to contribute towards the development of the country.
Madam Barekye, who was on Friday giving a lecture to 40 newly appointed managers and their assistants from the different State House industrial hubs spread across the country, stressed that by giving clear leadership in the skilling programme of youths in their respective regions, they will be making a positive contribution towards Uganda’s development. She stressed that it will be through such programmes that the Government will eliminate poverty in rural and urban households in Uganda.
Eng. Raymond Kamugisha, the Director Presidential Projects and Industrial Hubs, disclosed that 12 industrial hubs will be starting full operations by the 23rd of July and will each admit a total of 300 youths per semester who will be studying on a residential basis for six months.
