Gov. Masari’s wife distributes empowerment materials to women in Musawa, 2 others
The wife of the state governor, Hajia Hadiza Aminu Masari, has donated 250 sewing machines and assorted working materials to trainees that had undergone skills acquisition training at vocational centers in Musawa, Bakori, and Faskari Local Government Areas of the state.
At the occasion, the state governor, represented by the special adviser to the state governor on house of assembly matters, Rabiu Idris Funtua, said the gesture is to complement the various programmes of the government designed to enhance job creation and self-reliance among women and youths in the state.
Similarly, Hajiya Hadiza has helped no fewer than 30 inmates, mainly those imprisoned for minor offenses and debt-related cases, regained their freedom in Funtua Prison, Katsina State, over the weekend.
She admonished the freed prisoners to desist from any act capable of either endangering the lives or property of others or leading them back to jail.
Masari, however, pleaded with other well-meaning members of the public to help in securing the release of more repentant inmates with minor cases, while expressing concern over the plights of the affected convicts.
