Kebbi State Governor Atiku Bagudu has stated that 54,000 women will be supported by the World Bank under Nigeria for Women Project (NFWP), to enhance their livelihoods.
Bagudu, who made this known while inaugurating the State Steering and Technical Committee for the project on Monday in Birnin Kebbi, said 18,000 women from each of the three local government areas selected for the project, would benefit from the project.
He urged the committee to be transparent, accountable and involve all stakeholders for better results.
“This is a very important project for all of us. It is a project that is available to support women at various local government areas.”
“This is a World Bank programme that Kebbi state is competing with other states as the World Bank has a programme they call ‘performance results’.
“They give a financial allocation of $100 million for the six states. The harder you work the more money you will get.”
