”I was in Jos, Plateau State on Thursday to flag off the Federal Government Special Grant project for rural women which will see over 700,000 women receive grants of N20,000 to make them financially empowered members of the society.” Farouq said

This are the replies that follows
Madam, for your information, you all have lost touch with reality. The same N20k you claimed you shared during the pandemic is what you are still sharing in October meanwhile, the price of goods have increased during this period. Who are you fooling?

Giving them money is the worst idea.
If you truly want to empower any woman now, enable the environment for them
Good educational system
Access to tangible loans
Set up establishments
Otherwise it’s all rubbish

Please, how much is N20,000 in dollars? In case you don’t know, it’s $43 and you mean you are so proud enough to say this? tueeeeeeeh!

So madam the intention is to waste 14Billion on a 20k giveaway.
And to be honest, only 50-100k persons will benefit, and the rest embezzled.
My generation would:
Educate, train and empower them in groups to build and support each other under supervision.
