NIGER STATE GOVERNMENT RE-ECHOED SUPPORT TO A WORLD BANK WOMEN ASSISTED PROGRAMME                                                                                    14-12-23

By Sadiq Aminu                                                    The Niger State government is to partner the Nigeria For Women Project to scale up the number of beneficiaries and provide better ways of processing rice in the State.

The initiative is a World Bank supported programme where women cooperatives are empowered to boost their small scale businesses including rice production.

Receiving the samples of the products produced by the women in Abuja, Governor Mohammed Umar Bago described the project as one of the best initiatives of the World Bank in Nigeria.

He said Government would help in expanding the number of beneficiaries from the current Seventy Two Thousand women in three Local Government Areas under the programme, to cover the entire 25 LGAs of the State to give more economic independence to women.

The Senior Social Development Specialist and the Task team leader of the Nigeria For Women Project, Michael Ilesanmi explained that the project also assists them to have easy access to finance and markets.

He appealed for the support of the State Government to enable the Women Cooperatives to process at least Forty Eight tonnes of rice daily.

Some of the sample items presented to the Governor were bags of rice, vegetable oil, palm oil and Shea butter.
