The Kwara State Government has commenced the disbursement of financial interventions of N25,000 each to over 8000 unemployed youths and women in the state.

The disbursement according to the government was to cushion the effects of inflation presently ravaging the country.

A statement issued in Ilorin on Monday signed by the acting General Manager  State Social Investment Programmes (KWASSIP) Dr. Abdulwasiu Olayinka Tejidini stated that, the fund was disbursed under its public workfare scheme.

He also said, “The public workforce scheme is another layer of relief package planned by the government to grant the people succour amidst a biting inflation in the country”

Tejidini added that;  “the workfare scheme commenced on Monday February 5 after weeks of enumeration process that spanned the 16 local government areas of the state. In the last few weeks, our team at KWASSIP has toured the 16 local government areas of Kwara State to enumerate beneficiaries of the public workfare scheme. 

“The scheme is another impactful initiative of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq targeted at empowering young people and actively engaging them to become productive members of the society. Each beneficiary has started getting financial support in the sum of N25,000.
