Date: 2017-10-09

The Kwara state government is set to provide business and technical equipment to persons who completed a two week skill acquisition training.

The training was provided by The Future Assured, a programme set up by the wife of Nigeria's president, Aisha Buhari.

Wife of the Kwara State Governor, Omolewa Ahmed, gave the assurance when she represented Mrs. Buhari at the inauguration of the skill acquisition programme in Ilorin.

Aisha Buhari, on Sunday in Ilorin launched a two-week skill acquisition empowerment programme for 1,000 women and youth in Kwara.

Mrs Buhari said that the programme was part of her pet project, `Future Assured Programmeí which was a social intervention aimed at ameliorating poverty among youths and women.

She said that series of social programmes initiated by the present administration were aimed at transforming the lives of youth and womenfolk in particular, who formed a great chunk of the unemployed in the country.

The president's wife expressed concern over the myriad of social problems plaguing the country, which she said, had turned substantial part of active and agile youths to social miscreants.

According to her, the official launch, will, therefore, commence with the first batch of 1,000 unemployed youths and women selected from across the state. She admonished the beneficiaries to be active participants in the exercise, adding that at the end of the programme, an examination would be conducted.

Mrs Buhari said that those that scored the approved mark of attendance and pass mark would be empowered with working tools and kits for various trades. She listed the skill acquisition programmes to include tailoring, catering, soap making, computer training and electrical works.

Senior Special Assistant to the Kwara State Governor on Youth Empowerment commended the presidentís wife for her initiatives aimed at alleviating poverty.

He advised the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the empowerment skills as it would go a long way in solving the problem of unemployment among youths and women in the state.
