• Commends Abdulqawiyu for project sustainability
The All Progressive Youth Forum (APYF) Kwara state chapter has described Kwarapreneur 2.0 as the best way to celebrate Kwara youths by his Excellency Mallam Abdulrahman Abdurazaq on the International Youth Day.
Kwarapreneur 2.0 which was used by the State government to mark the International Youth Day saw nothing less 100 “Youthpreneurs” in the state going home with one million naira each to support their businesses.
The State Coordinator of APYF Comrade Tunde Salau, who led some Executives of the Forum to witness the event, described the Kwarapreneur project as a landmark initiative which also reaffirmed the consistency, commitment and compassion the Abdulrazaq’s led administration has for the youths. This is coupled with the large ratio of youths occupying various political offices in the administration and are also allowed to function effectively without any encumbrances or being teleguided by anyone.
Salau said if the beneficiaries of the Kwarapreneur 2.0 effectively utilized the fund (which he is optimistic of), he is confidence that they will in few years ahead, be employers of labour thereby reducing the rate of unemployment in the state.
He noted that imagine the other state of the federation emulating what the Kwara State Governor has done! We will have been talking about 3,600 youths (millionaires) who are empowered and this will go a long way in generating employment opportunities with multiplying effects.
The Kwara State Coordinator of APYF further commended the Acting General Manager of Kwara State Social Investment Programme (KWASSIP) Abdulqawiyu Olododo for a job welldone and for sustaining the Kwarapreneur programme initiated by his predecessor Mohammed Braimah. Noting that these are all youths doing fantastically well in their various positions of responsibilities.
Salau therefore on behalf of the beneficiaries and the entire Kwara youths commended Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq for the laudable initiative and urged him to give the youths more opportunities to serve in his administration, as they are the nucleus of any political party or adminstration.
