The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed, has explained how the Federal Government will disburse the N75 billion Youth Fund.
She said that, between N250, 000 to N5 million will be accessible to each benefiting youth in the Federal Government’s N75 billion entrepreneurship youth support fund.
While speaking to 77 District Heads and religious leaders in Kaduna in continuation of President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to all his cabinet members to return home and interface with their constituents on the efforts of the present administration towards national development, the minister said youths could access the N75 billion entrepreneurship youth support fund, as each benefiting youth would get an amount ranging from N250, 000 to N5 million.
According to the Minister, the meeting was designed to get inputs on best ways to empower the youths in reaction to the #EndSARS protest which metamorphosed into looting.
She appealed to religious and traditional leaders to help sensitize parents at community level on the need to instill family values on their children.
