    SMEDAN efforts under this leadership is inspiring. Coming from IT background and currently serving as a Vice Chairman of a Local Government, have come across youths with skills but to not know how to turn it into economic resource. I’ll be glad if SMEDAN can collaborate with my LG to provide similar training as done in Kastina State. Thank you.

Thanks for helping the youths but please make it more open. Let the process of choosing beneficiaries be very open. When are you coming to Kwara State, we need this empowerment as well. Thanks in anticipation of your response through this platform and mail.
