“Some of you will benefit with N200,000 , some N150,000,while some will receive N100,000 each,” he said.

The lawmaker urged the beneficiaries to make adequate use of the financial empowerment.

” I hope that next year by this time beneficiaries of this gesture would be able to support others.I pray to Allah(SWT) to bless your business and bring more goodies to our community,Kano State and the Nation at large,” he said.

He added that by the end of March this year, other wards of Fagge Federal Constituency would also benefit from the same gesture .

In her remarks,Hajiya Zuwaira Abubakar Tarauni, Kano State NNPP Women leader, urged the beneficiaries to make maximum use of the empowerment.

” You should ensure that you embark on small scale businesses so that you can help yourself and your family.I urge you not to relent in the pursue of your dreams,”Tarauni added.
