Recognizing the significance of technology, skill acquisition in trades, and agriculture, Halilu emphasized the importance of renewable energy solutions in addressing the challenges posed by unreliable electric power supply, particularly in Nigeria and Africa.


The solar power installation and maintenance training not only offered an alternative power source for homes and businesses but also aimed to complement the national power grid while providing job opportunities for the participants. To ensure the sustainability of the program, the Board finalized plans to register cooperative societies for the trainees and provide them with dedicated shops for their business activities.
