Shettima launches largest empowerment programme in Borno, receives commendation from Gov Zulum



Babagana Umara Zulum, governor of Borno has said the empowerment materials provided by the Senator representing Borno Central, Kashim Shettima, remains the largest since he assumed office in 2019.

The Governor stated this on Monday during the launch of distribution of kits and cash to trainees at the Government House in Maiduguri.

About 1,000 women and youths under Shettima’s Borno Central constituency were empowered with start-up kits and N25,000 cash after an extensive skill acquisition programme which was facilitated by Senator Kashim Shettima.

“It is my singular honour and privilege to witness the presentation of kits and cash to 1,000 beneficiaries sponsored by Sen. Kashim Shettima,” Zulum said.

“This is so far the largest empowerment programme benefited by the people of Borno State. This empowerment, if well utilized, will, insha Allah, provide livelihood to our internally displaced persons in the state”, the Governor further said.

The Governor urged the beneficiaries to judiciously utilise the materials provided to them by the Senator representing Borno Central.

Speaking earlier, Senator Kashim Shetima expressed appreciation to the Governor for attending the occasion.

Other speakers include the wife of Borno State Governor, Dr Falmata Zulum and the state caretaker party Chairman, Ali Bukar Dalori.
