Appreciating  the mass turn out of participants as well as the zeal, commitment and dedication shown by all the facilitators, Bobboji urged participants to avoid any form of social vices.
He noted that the youths empowerment program is the 7th of its kind since the inception of his administration, adding that the training programme will take place in all the 10 wards of Jalingo Local Government. The empowerment program had earlier held in  Waziri Saadu area of Turaki 'A' and  Kona ward had trained hundreds of youths and women in skills includes Dish and Satellite Installations; Tailoring; Cream and Soap Making; Marbles and Tilling; ICT; Shoe and Bag; Catering among others.

The merit award was presented to him by the leadership of Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees "NULGE" in collaboration with the State Chapter of the Association whom paid him a courtesy visit to congratulate him on his recent nomination as the Acting  Chairman ALGON Taraba State chapter.
The council chairman while speaking after receiving the award dedicated the award the  Governor Of Taraba State Arch Darius Dickson Ishaku, whom he said, he had always emulated since he assumed office as the Executive Chairman of Jalingo Local Government.
Bobboji further said his aspiration to develop Jalingo Local Government came from his working Governor, Arch Darius Dickson Ishaku, whom he described as a developer of both human and infrastructures.
While commending the Governor for the supports he has gotten so far, Bobboji said the Governor had within the first four years of his administration turned around the state with harvest of developments, saying that if there were third term, he would have single handed moved the motion for the Governor third term re-election.
While commending the Leadership of the NULGE for selecting him to be awarded as the best Chairman of the year, Bobboji said the award will further spur him to do more in his service, calling on all Tarabans to rally round and support the administration of  Governor Darius Ishaku.
