Lagos—Surulere Local Government in conjunction with All Progressives Congress, APC, youth leader’s sensitisation/orientation initiative, has empowered youths, widows and the aged with N35 million worth of working tools.
Speaking at the poverty alleviation empowerment programme, the Chairman, Surulere Local government, Tajudeen Ajide, said, the youths, were the leaders of the nation and deserved to be empowered to better their lives.
“What we are doing today, is to impact in the lives and welfare of the Surulere people. There are many youths and widows, in Surulere out there that are capable of doing so many jobs, but have no means of buying the equipment needed to put such skills to use,” he said.
We are mobilizing the youths and preparing them to be good leaders of the society, the youth are full of vast and untapped energy and Senator Remi Tinubu has also dedicated herself to the welfare of the Surulere people, she has done a lot for the Lagos central and has empowered the youths immensely.
