WARRI—A TOTAL  of 125 women from five communities in Warri South Local Government Area, Delta State, have been presented with cheques of N75,000 each by a Warri-based company, Matrix Energy Limited, in line with the state government’s human capital development agenda.

The money is a 50 per cent increase from last year’s figure of N50,000 given to 40 women from Ifiekporo, 25 from Ubeji and 20 each from Aja-Etan, Egbokodo and Ijala communities.

Managing Director and CEO of Matrix Energy, Alhaji Abdulkadir  Aliu, who spoke while presenting the cheques, blamed the company’s inability to combine this year’s presentation of cheques with its students’ scholarship programme on the inability of academic institutions to complete the 2012/2013 academic calendar.
