Mr. Lee Jin-Su, KCCN Director, said the competition was aimed at promoting innovation, friendship, relationship, as well as socio-economic and youth development of the country.
The FCT UBEB Director, Dr. Adamu Noma, who was represented by the Director of Public/Private Partnership, Habiba Barau said, “We cannot underestimate the role of mutual understanding in the economic and social development of any country. This competition provides an opportunity for cultural integration and understanding which is part of international relation.”
