My human capital agenda will target women, youths, vulnerables, says Dr Gwamna


Dr Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, a frontline People’s Democratic Party (PDP) aspirant in Gombe State has said his human capital development agenda would be carried out through loan scheme, grant, skills acquisition amongst others.

According to Gwamna, skills acquisition from tailoring, shoe making, soap making, art, mechanical and other locally fabricated equipment amongst other would be given serious attention to empower youth and women.

Gwamna who stated this when some women group paid him a solidarity visit in Gombe on Friday said the aim of the programme was to address the huge poverty in the land and give people opportunity to improve their welfare.

Gwamna through Ibrahim Sani Shawai, Director of Publicity, Dr. Gwamna Campaign Organisation said, after training, loans or grants would be given to trainees depending on the type of programme so as to ensure that they don’t go back to sit at home after being trained.

“We will have a lot of partnership to incorporate the private sector into this programme through a Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) arrangement to ensure that the programme gets the needed supports.

“I also want to say that the programme would be inclusive in operation to ensure that everyone, women, youth, people living with disabilities amongst other benefit maximally from this initiative; this is based on my personal believe that no society can effectively develop without inclusivity.’’
