Borno Social Media Frontiers, organised an in house workshop for its members in order to find a way forward for the youth of Borno state, through the Social Media through enlightenment and Advocacy for many opportunities and potentials in the state and northeast in general.
Social Media has penetrated almost every nook and crany of our daily lives. Social Media is now taking over the place of conventional media as the source of information decimation, therefore this use of this platform in enlightening and guiding our fellow youths to become updated with the opportunities, potentials and the way forward in a positive way is paramount, especially in a post insurgency Borno state.
The northeast, which is affected by the insurgency, and Borno being the epi-centre of the crises, has so many untapped potentials that if well and truly hannesed, will surely engage the youth and hence reduce unemployment, idleness and over dependence on Government and white colar jobs. Potentials such as Agriculture, entraprenual ships, skill acquisition, Loans from Bank of industry, SMEDAN, ICT development centre etc.
In attendance were many experienced and experts as well as youth in leadership position and pioneer members of BSF, such as the Caretaker chairman, Kukawa Local Government Area Hon Habib Kekeno Members Board of trustees and Elder Hon Musa Ali KSM and Hon Mohammed Zannah Kormi Pioneer Secretary of BSF Hon Abdullahi Yusuf immediate past BSF interim Coordinator Umaru Bako and Secretary Umar Sanda.
At the end of the workshop, the house agreed on some selected areas to work on for further workshop.
