Bagudu empowers vegetable sellers with N6.15m

 KEBBI State Governor, Senator Abubakar Bagudu, on Sunday, in Birnin Kebbi, donated N6.15m to 205 women vegetables sellers in the state.

Each of the 205 women got N30,000, from the donation, aimed at boosting their businesses.

The governor announced the donation at the graduation of the benefitting women which took place at Bayan Kara Market, Birnin Kebbi.

All the women who benefitted from the programme have received training in perishable items preservation.

The comprehensive training of women traders was conducted by the state chapter of the Vegetables Sellers’ Association.

Bagudu lauded the association for the unparalleled gesture and urged other groups to emulate it.

He said, “The association needs to be commended for training the women in the business of perishable items and vegetables, a business dominated by men.

“I am appealing to more people in the state to form groups and cooperatives like this one, so as to get routine support from the state. My administration is ready to partner with any group and association to further boost trade and commerce.”
