Edo Hails President Buhari’s Self-Sufficiency Initiative

Edo state Government on Thursday, commended President Muhammadu Buhari’s self-sufficiency initiative on local production and consumption of goods.

The state government’s commendation arose from the recent federal government’s pronouncement on the ban of importation of rice and clothing materials as part of its efforts to encourage self-sufficiency through entrepreneurship and small and medium scale businesses.

Edo state Deputy Governor, Rt. Hon Philip Shaibu, made the commendation at the women empowerment programme organized by the member representing Akoko Edo Constituency II in the state House of Assembly, Hon Emmanuel Agbaje, on Thursday in Igarra.
Shaibu, who at the occasion, reiterated that Gov. Godwin Obaseki would never renege on his electioneering promises, disclosed that plans had been concluded to commence the process of registration of youths for employment.

He said, “Edo State Government under the able leadership of my boss, the Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, have decided in line with our electioneering promises, before election, that we would create about 200, 000 jobs.
