Birinin Kebbi – Kebbi State Governor, Abubakar Bagudu on Tuesday charged women leaders in the North West of the country to educate women to venture into businesses to enhance their productivity and be self reliant.

Bagudu gave the charge in Birnin Kebbi shortly after receiving youth and women leaders of the North West zone of All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I urge women leaders across the North West to educate women on the need to embrace businesses so as to become productive to themselves and the society.

”Every woman must be financially self-reliant; if women get the opportunity to unleash their creativity, they will conquer poverty and contribute to the family, society and country,” he said.

Bagudu noted that the development of the society partly rest on those in authority, but said citizens also have a responsibility to be part of the process.

He said that the introduction of the Anchor Borrowers Programme was part of efforts by the Buhari administration to help farmers enhance their productivity and economic status.

The governor further urged women to form associations and seek for guidance and financial support from government in order to improve their economic status, create wealth and provide employment opportunity.

He commended women for coming out en mass to vote at the just concluded presidential and National Assembly elections.

”The large turnout of women voters at the polls was commendable, the number of women that turned out at the election outnumbered men in most of the polling units across the state and I hope it will be same in the next scheduled election,” he said.

Earlier, the APC North-West women leader, Hajiya Yahazu Buba, in her remark said they were in the state to rejoice with the governor over the victory recorded in the last presidential and national assembly elections.

She added that they would not relent in  mobilising youth and women to come out and vote for APC in the coming gubernatorial and state assembly elections.

Buba said part of the tour was to educate women and youth to learn from the mistakes of the past by voting wisely and correctly.

Also, the Youth Leader, Sadiq Fakai also said they would continue to reach out to the youth to ensure peace during the polls.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) repots that the women leader presented an award to Gov. Bagudu for initiating empowerment programs for women and youths in the state. (NAN)
