Flagging-off the distribution, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state has said that our drive in the various empowerment packages would speed up our post-insurgency recovery and wealth creation for stability and prosperity.

According to him, today we are distributing 1,900 irrigation water pumps and accessories, 125 commercial pick-up Tricycles also known as JEGA and 125 commercial or KEKE NAPEP.

“In addition about 500 youth from rural communities would be empowered and supported with skill acquisition materials such as sewing machines, barbing salon kits, pasta-making machines and hairdressing materials.” He added.


Governor Buni urged the beneficiaries to ensure they put the items to proper use avoid selling them and appreciate government efforts and be on the same page with us in the right against poverty, adding that, government has set some machineries in place to monitor the beneficiaries in their various trades.

He said, this is in conformity with the maxim of teaching the people “how to catch fish” rather than making them depend on a “fish handout.”

The governor also call on the good people of Yobe state to pray for a very successful inauguration here at home and at the national level as well as pray for a bumper harvest and the prosperity of our dear state and country at large.

He maintained that the empowerment is largely to support small scale businesses and small business individuals.
