It’s Your Choice To Remain Poor – Aisha Buhari To Nigerians

The First Lady of the Federation, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has asked Nigerians as they go to the polls on Saturday, to decide whether the poor should become poorer and the rich richer or a society where the gap begins to be reduced.

She stated this on Thursday while presenting empowerment packs to 1,250 women and youths from the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.

In a statement by her media adviser Adebisi, Olumide Ajayi, quoted Mrs. Buhari, as saying that poverty is one of the indices that encourage people to embrace vices like terrorism, kidnapping, and begging.

Earlier, the Director-General, National Directorate of Employment (NDE) Dr. Nasir, Mohammed Argungu, disclosed since 2014, the revenue allocation to the agency had not changed.

However, the agency was able to train 861,234 women and youths from 2015 to date, compared to 4,832 trained in 2014/15

The programme was organised by NDE in collaboration with The Future Assured initiative of the wife of the president and Defence and Police officers Wives Association (DEPOWA)

The beneficiaries who were drawn from the six local government areas of Abuja went home with cosmetology-starter packs worth N40.000 cash.
