Senator Uba Targets 100 Entrepreneurs to Benefit FG SME's Support
Nigerian Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly Uba Sani will be empowering first 100 out of 1000 targeted beneficiaries of his foundation. The beneficiaries, trained in fish farming and poultry production during the entrepreneurship and skills acquisition scheme, will benefit from the Federal Government’s Social Investment Programme meant to support Small and Medium Scale Entreprises (SMEs). Sani, who was recently awarded 'icon of societal change' by the Nigerian Bar Association, also said his foundation will be sponsoring some students for the WAEC/SSCE exams.
According to the Senator, the Uba Sani Foundation is consistently monitoring and supervising the progress of indigent and brilliant students. Lawmaking is about service to the people. He encouraged the youths to acquire skills so as to be financially self-reliant and assured the graduating students of necessary support to access funds and grants from the Federal Government for start-up capital. Responding on behalf of the beneficiaries, Wapa Aliyu expressed gratitude to the Senator saying the beneficiaries will not disappoint him “Through his representation, the Senatorial District is already reaping benefits,” he said.
Kaduna state chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Hon Jakada who was at the graduation ceremony challenged all elected representatives of the APC in the country to borrow a leaf from Senator Uba Sani.
