The Director-General, Brigadier General Suleiman Kazaure said the training centre will bridge skills gap and provide residential training at no cost to interested Corps Members.

He commended the management of Access Bank Plc for its determination to contribute towards your empowerment.


General Kazaure also appealed to other stakeholders to emulate Access Bank towards assisting in the construction and completion of the remaining regional SAED centres across the country.
