Madam Abubakari Aisha Baucie, the General Manager of the Motor King Company Limited, has advised women to develop interest in engineering and manufacturing to create job opportunities and improve their living conditions.
She said women need to be empowered with support from both government and Non- Governmental Organisations economically, socially and politically, to become better contributors to national development.
Madam Baucie gave the advice in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) during a visit to the company on Tuesday, in Tamale by the GNA to check on its operations and work and also how the Tricycles had benefitted people in the three Northern Regions.
She said the Company had so far trained four young ladies on how to assemble the motor tricycles and that, they had since been employed and are competing with their male counterparts in the assembling of the tricycles.
She said, being the first Motor Tricycles assembling Company in the country, she had provided knowledge and skills to the workers to enhance their living standards.
“The skills had empowered the women to achieve economic sufficiency, improved their social and economic standards as well as transforming their lives.”
Madam Baucie called on the unemployed, especially women in the area, to come to the Company for a free skill training, to enable them to earn an income.
She advised motorists and pedestrians to endeavour to be patient on the road to avoid accidents.
