The former Commissioner for Information and later Education in Kano State had pledged, in an interview with Nico News, recently, that the Governing Board will work as a family with the entire Management and staffers of NICO.
The visit will afford the Executive Secretary, Dr. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma and the management team the opportunity to properly brief him on the programmes and activities of the Institute.
