The Youwin Program of the PDP and the N-Power of the APC are very rare Programs of Social Empowerment.
They are Unique and Yielding results.
On the other hand, The Katsina State Government is said to be empowering youths using different Programs and through many Departments. But i believe we can do more.
Am using this opportunity to call on Gov. Masari to Domesticate/Localise the above Programs(YOUWIN & NPOWER).
For the KTYouwin the Govt should Call for business proposals from Young people that require Capital of between #50000-#25000. The ministry of Commerce should call the Proposers for Presentation. Those with Viable Businesses should be Supported with No guarantor and no collateral. Only that a Supervision Mechanism will be set in Motion for Counselling Backing.
For the K(N)Power, we should Copy the FG. Everything should be online, and you don’t have to know anybody to be Considered.. In our case BVN should not be a Prerequisite. HERE, WE SHOULD BE EXTRA CAREFUL, IF NOT. WE WILL END UP PAYING ‘KUDIN YAN ISKA’ as it was once done.
The Road is Clear for Katsina’s Prosperity.
