Lawmaker representing Bindawa/Mani federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon Ahmed Yusuf Doro has announced plans that will tame unemployment amongst the women, engage the youths, boost the quality of education, health, and agriculture in his constituency.
He revealed that under the agricultural empowerment programme that he has put in place, 300 youths will be mobilised and 300 hectares shared among them to farm grasses for pastoral animals, which can be sold to them. This, he said, will complement President Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda of discouraging open grazing in Nigeria.
He explained steps he has taken so far to nib unemployment in the bud in his constituency, including mobilising and engaging 300 women from his constituency who are resident in Abuja, who are in the business of selling chickens with the aim of engaging them in poultry production and farming in order to boost their self reliance. Hon. Doro further stressed that discussions are in top gear to finalise the cost of this scheme/project with the women, assuring that all the needed support for the project to succeed will be provided.
The lawmaker also said that the youths are not left out in his legislative agenda, adding that he has packaged an elaborate farming scheme that will engage the youths in mechanised agriculture, where land, irrigation, funds, will be provided to boost the sector. He stated further that he was passionate about keying into President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s agenda on animal husbandry in the country. Doro promised to promote the farming of animal grass feeds by youths of his constituency as well as infrastructural development.
Expressing his passion for education while lamenting the poor condition of education in his constituency, Hon Doro told LEADERSHIP that schools in his constituency does not have enough teachers, classrooms, and teaching materials or learning tools to take youths off the streets. As such, he has also made education one of his priorities in the ongoing pilot schemes. He further said that he has arranged to engage and recruit NCE certificate holders who are professional teachers/tutors and NYSC to complement the professionals.
