He said the council would establish an automotive training center in Potiskum to complement the efforts of the state government.
“Your Excellency you have done great by establishing the Trailer park, the proposed training center would best be put to use at the trailer park” Jailani said.
Governor Buni thanked the council for showing interest in the project and willingness to assist the state government in the development of the trailer park.
Governor Buni said “Potiskum has over 8,000 truck owners, it has the largest cattle market in West Africa so the business of trucks is very huge and the need for the automotive training center at the trailer park in Potiskum is the best thing to do.”
