Stallion Auto Keke Limited has made a delivery of 140 Bajaj Tricycles to the government of Yobe State of Nigeria towards youth empowerment and poverty alleviation.
The tricycles were received by the Ministry of Wealth Creation, Empowerment and Employment Generation under the Yobe State Government to empower and support small scale businesses and small business individuals.
Launching the program recently at the Government House, Damaturu, the Executive Governor of Yobe State, Hon. Mai Mala Buni described the occasion as continuation of his administration’s efforts towards the support of the people of Yobe State.
He said: “There is no doubt that small and medium-scale businesses can create employment opportunities to combat poverty. As a continuation of our empowerment program, the tricycles shall be deployed towards empowering and supporting unemployed youths, small scale businesses and small-business individuals across the State.
The governor expressed optimism that the empowerment drive would speed up post-insurgency recovery and wealth creation in the state for stability and prosperity.
He, therefore, charged the beneficiaries to put the tricycles and other equipment to use and avoid selling them, saying government would monitor the beneficiaries in their various trades.
Bajaj Tricycle is assembled and exclusively distributed in Nigeria by Stallion Auto Keke Limited, under The Stallion Group.
Reacting, the company expressed appreciation to the Yobe State Ministry of Wealth Creation, Empowerment for choosing Bajaj tricycle brand.
