Adamawa State Government says it has trained 10,520 youths and women on entrepreneurship development to reduce poverty and enhance wealth creation at the grassroots.
Mr Illiya Jems, the state Commissioner for Entrepreneurship Development, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Yola on Friday.
“Some of them received N10,000, N20,000 and N30,000 monthly, it is just like conditional cash transfer.
“The uniqueness of the programme is the capacity building aspect on entrepreneurship development.
“I call on you to utilise the money judiciously to be self reliant employers of labour and contribute to the economic development of the state,” he said.
According to him, Gov. Fintiri has designed a lot of programmes to empower youths and women in the state, adding that some of it would be inaugurated soon. (NAN)
