The Director-General, National Board for Technology Incubation, Engr. Dr Muhammad Jibril paid a special visit to Engausa Global Tech Hub, Kano, on September 11, 2021. The Engausa Management warmly welcomed the DG.
As the DG frequently does, the purpose of the visit was to monitor and ascertain the level of commitment of the business under the centre towards human capital development, skill development, and youths empowerment.
On his part, the Founder/CEO of Engausa, Engr Mustapha Habu Ringim, profoundly thanked the Federal Government, the Federal Ministry of Science and Technology (through the National Board for Technology Incubation) and the Federal Ministry Communications and Digital Economy ( through National Information Technology Development Agency) for providing a favourable business environment for Engausa Global Tech.

The CEO noted that, if not for this elderly support and guidance from the Agencies, Engausa would not have recorded the successes so far.
Furthermore, the CEO briefed the DG NBTI about the 47 businesses harvested out by the hub and 1000 graduated apprentices powerfully trained in digital technology to bridge the digital skill gaps we have in the North and Nigeria at large.
The DG heartily applauded Engausa’s impact across the country and pledged to support the hub’s goals to cover more milestones. The DG added that they would do whatever it takes to help businesses and grow them to withstand any business tides through his office. He said that people who have business ideas, especially technology and innovation related ones, should put those ideas to work because the government will always be there to support innovative businesses like Engausa.
The DG was taken around the hub and ascertained the quality of the training tools, equipment, and bilingual education system deployed to ameliorate teeming youths’ learning difficulties.
