The Honourable member representing Zango Kataf/Jaba Federal constituency of Kaduna state, has again surprised people in his constituency by making good his promise of empowering those trained during the empowerment scheme program he organized for his constituency.
Beneficiaries from Jaba were given their startup grants earlier on 20th September, 2017. The beneficiaries who benefited were seventy-six in number, where each of them received the cheque of N30,000.00 (Thirty thousand naira).
You can recall that at the closing ceremony of the five days skill acquisition training, Hon. Barr. Sunday Marshal Katung said “I have thought deeply what measures we can take to salvage our people from the bond of laziness and poverty to wealth creation.”
“Our youths today have been labeled names and engaged into doing uncharitable things by evil people to perpetrate evil within their communities and the region. Our women are wasting away with all the potentials and value they can add to the economy”.
“These and other reasons informed our resolve to hold this empowerment training, so that we can engage the future generation in meaningful economic activities that will be of benefit to not only them, but to their immediate families, village, community, local government, region and the country at large”.
“The minimum amount required to open the account has been provided. We will make a modest contribution into each account when the process is completed. The idea is to enable the trained entrepreneurs have a smooth start in their march towards self-sustenance”.
