Kwara State Governor Begins Women Empowerment

Ahmed, while speaking during the empowerment programme, said his administration has prioritized the informal sector as a major driver of economic activities and as the area in which majority of the people are making a living.

He promised to release the remaining N21 million out of the N41 million empowerment fund in January. The governor claimed the empowerment is a part of his administration’s efforts to enhance the livelihoods of women.

According to him: “It is designed to assist women who are the powerful majority of the electorate and are in dire need of financial assistance to do their businesses.”

The governor said the approach of his administration is to strengthen the informal sector which is the micro, small and medium enterprises, under which micro-credit funds are disbursed via micro finance banks to qualifying cooperative groups.

Ahmed said the first set of beneficiaries were drawn from the three senatorial districts of the state, adding that the decision to prioritize women was born out of the role they (women) played in shaping the society politically, socially and economically.

He said: “In view of this, this government has put in place various programmes to educate, and empower women and young girls with the tools, resources and skills necessary to build productive lives for the benefit of the society.”

The governor, who expressed optimism for the repayment of the fund giving out to aid the women, announced that the scheme has recorded a 75 per cent repayment rate, adding that women have greater incentive to utilize the funds prudently and repay on schedule.

Meanwhile, governor Ahmed,while speaking at a function organised by members of the ‘Third Estate,’ in Ilorin recently, announced that the Kwara state government now generates about N1.5 billion monthly as internally generated revenue. He also said that this was against the monthly revenue of N500 million the state used to generate before the introduction of new revenue collection strategy through the Kwara Internal Revenue Service (KWIRS).
