A Chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Lawal Usman, has empowered about 42, 000 women and young people in Kaduna State with skills to enable them start their own businesses.
Usman, popularly called ‘Mr. LA’ told Newsmen on Sunday in Zaria that the beneficiaries were trained in different skills like tailoring, welding, jewelry making and baking.
Usman added that he had also provided scholarship to 500 students of tertiary institutions across the state to enable them complete their studies.
He said that the gesture was aimed at touching the lives of the beneficiaries and to make them contribute their quota towards development of the society.
Usman said that he decided to narrow his charity to empowerment because it was the only way to develop human beings.
