About 400 women and youths across Taraba North have been empowered with start-up kits after an extensive skill acquisition programme which was facilitated by a former member of the national assembly, Aminu Malle.

Malle represented Jalingo/Yorro/Zing federal constituency in the House of Representatives from 2011-2019, and he is the current Chief of Staff to the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Idris Wase.

The beneficiaries were trained on barbing, hairdressing, ICT, catering and events management among others.

Malle, who spoke through the coordinator of the skill acquisition programme, Manu Sa’ad, said the gesture to alleviate poverty.

He also cautioned beneficiaries against selling the pieces of equipment and encouraged them to use the starter packs as leverage to grow and expand.
