Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From Romoke W. Ahmad, Ilorin

A mem­ber of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Hon. Olay­onu O. Dan­ladi, rep­re­sent­ing Ifelo­dun/ Offa/Oyun Fed­eral Con­stituency in Kwara State, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Small and Medium En­ter­prises Agency of Nige­ria (SMEDAN) have spent N50m on em­pow­er­ment of peo­ple from the con­stituency.

Dan­ladi said that the em­pow­er­ment pro­gramme was aimed at mak­ing peo­ple in­de­pen­dent and em­ploy­ers of labour. The pro­gramme would run in batches, he said, adding that the ini­tia­tive was meant to re­duce hard­ships faced by his con­stituents as a re­sult of drop in the price of oil at the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket.
