I’ll focus on human capital development, employment: Jamil Gwamna

Dr. Gwamna disclosed this to journalists in Dukku community during a stakeholders engagement.

According to him, the need for human capital development through massive investment remains the key to economic prosperity for any state or country.

”As an economist, I can tell you that no nation attains sustainable economic growth without developing the human resources necessary to drive such growth. How we develop and utilise human capital is vital to economic productivity and growth”, he said.

Gwamna who is also the Sardaunan Gombe said the most critical assets of any state is its people assed that this will be his priority because poor investment in human capital will deepen poverty and result to low productivity adding that this is what he hope to change.

The Sardauna of Gombe said to achieve this, he will focus on education and healthcare which are key to measuring the development of human capital of any state.

Dr Jamil Ishaku Gwamna added that Part of the education will be focused on skills acquisition for youths which will empower them with the know-how to be self-reliant.
