Date: 2022-12-14

Kwara State Social Investment Programmes (KWASSIP) has added public workfare to its activities as part of efforts to reduce poverty amongst youths in the state. Under the scheme, beneficiaries will be engaged in community services.

The general manager of KWASSIP, Abdulquawiy Olododo, told LEADERSHIP that public workfare has been added to the agency’s activities as a way of getting more youths involved in yet another productive manner.

“As part of our mandate to alleviate poverty among the vulnerable people in the state, we have introduced ‘Public Workfare programme’ by engaging people that will be deployed to areas within the state capital for cleaning, clearing of dumpsites, clearing of bushes, and ensuring that the state is always clean.

“We are starting in the state capital for now with cleaning and maintaining the grasses along the road dividers, and this will be deployed to areas such as Ahmadu Bellow way, Tanke Junction, Fate Roundabout, Airport Road, Irewolede and Adewole roundabout in the first phase,” Olododo added.

He also added that the scope of the programne would keep increasing as the need arises.

“KWASSIP is an initiative of the administration of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to support the vulnerable poor and improve the economy and human capital development index in the state,” he said.
