Though it has not been easy but at the end of it, we were able to achieve our aims. This is the second set of ladies and women to graduate in mechanical engineering under this initiative. We implore parents, guardians and young ladies who are jobless to enroll for this course, it is just for three years and it is very affordable. After the programme, they have the opportunities to work with auto makers home and abroad. And we are seeking the support of the federal government so as to make the mission possible”.
