About 1000 beneficiaries have finished their skill acquisition programme in Bauchi state, a women and youth empowerment component of the pet project of the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, known as Future Assured Initiative. 

The beneficiaries received training on insecticide production, tie and dye, bakery and pastries, body spray and perfume making, beautification and food processing.

Speaking at the event, Mrs. Buhari called on the beneficiaries to put their new skills to good use and live better, productive and more fruitful lives.

“It is indeed gratifying to note that you have already started making money from the skills you have acquired. This means that you can now solve your immediate financial problems with ease,” she said.

She also called on privileged, well-meaning individuals in Bauchi state to emulate this effort as the turn-out of this training has revealed the interest of women and youth to get involved in income generating activities.

In his remarks, Governor Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar of Bauchi state lauded the effort of Mrs. Buhari, which he said was in line with the change manifesto of the ruling party.

He said by her contributions in ameliorating the hardship of the ordinary Nigerians, the wife of the President is actualizing the “Change Begins with Me” campaign.

Also speaking, wife of the Governor of Bauchi state, Hajiya Hadiza M. A. Abubakar, said the people of Bauchi are proud of the contributions Mrs. Buhari is making towards the success of the present administration.
