Dangote to empower 1 000 Jigawa women

15 January 2013, 14:36

Jigawa - Jigawa State Government said it had selected 1 000 women to benefit from a donation by Dangote Foundation.

The Commissioner for Women Affairs and Social Development, Hadiza Abdulwahab, said the donation was to boost small scale businesses in the state.

The foundation had in September 2012, pledged to give N270 million to rural women across the 27 local government areas of the state. The commissioner disclosed this during a sensitisation workshop organised for the selected women in Jahun, Jigawa.

Abdulwahab explained that N10 million would be disbursed to all the beneficiaries in the area. She said each of the recipients would receive N10,000 to boost her business, adding that the gesture would assist in eradication of poverty.

The commissioner urged the beneficiaries to use the money judiciously.
She stated that women in other local government areas of the state would also benefit soon.

Abdulwahab noted that the current administration would partner with any organisation in poverty eradication and job creation in the state.
