The Kebbi State Forum of Special Advisers to Governor Nasir Idris has pledged to donate N20 million to assist youths and women in line with the empowerment programme of the governor.

The forum’s Chairman, Kabiru Sani-Giant made this known at a meeting organised by the advisers in Birnin Kebbi on Saturday.

He said the gesture was to make the people self-reliant in the state.

Mr Sani-Giant said: “This gesture is in consonance with the policy thrust of His Excellency, Gov. Nasir Idris directed towards collective leadership to mitigate the effects of present economic hardship faced by the people.

“It is also aimed at bringing succour to the people, reducing poverty, supporting many families as well as empowering men and women to engage in commercial activities, especially during the Holy Month of Ramadan.”

Mr Sani-Giant expressed delight over the decision and unity of purpose of the members in their support and loyalty to the Idris-led administration.

He assured the readiness of the advisers to extend unflinching support to Mr Idris to enable him achieve good governance and uplift the general well-being of the people.

“I want to tell you with full confidence that the governor is proud of us, and he is watching with keen interest what we are doing to support his developmental strides in the state. What we have set out to do is in line with his empowerment agenda, to reduce poverty and assist people, particularly the masses in society,” he noted.

The chairman thanked the governor for affording the special advisers the opportunity to serve the people under his leadership.

The special advisers had constituted an 11-man member committee to determine the number, category of beneficiaries and amount to be disbursed to each person.
