Jigawa government says the Nigerian Maritime and Safety Administration Agency (NIMASA), has donated Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) empowerment tools to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Jigawa.
Secretary to Jigawa State Government (SSG), Alhaji Adamu Fanini, made this known in a statement in Dutse on Wednesday.
Fanini said the tools donated were sewing machines, grinding machines, generators, complete barbing accessories, tricycles, motorcycles, among others.
Fanini, who lauded the agency for donating to the displaced persons, said the tools were presented to the state government by a representative of the agency, Mr. Adamu Dankura.
The Permanent Secretary, Administration and Finance, Alhaji Muhammad Dagaceri, who stood in for Fanini, thanked the agency for the gesture.
Fanini described NIMASA as “a wonderful partner.”
The SSG quoted Dankura as saying the donation was to commiserate with the people of the state and to identify with the IDPs.
“NIMASA, as a responsible organization is complying with the directive of the Federal Government to all her agencies and parastatals to donate to all displaced persons in the country.
“This is our corporate social responsibility. We (NIMASA) are doing this in so many states and we are ready to do more,” Dankura said.
