3,500 Oyo People Benefits From sure-p by fabulous4u: 10:01am On Dec 07, 2013
A total of 3,500 people in Oyo State
have been empowered under the
Subsidy Re-investment and
Empowerment Programme (SURE-P)
Launching the programme in Ibadan
yesterday, President Jonathan
through the Minister of Labour and
Productivity, Chief Emeka Wogu,
noted that those who benefited from
the project comprised 1,982 males
and 1,518 females, with all the
beneficiaries of the project currently
working in 144 service units spread
across all the 33 local government
areas of the state.
He stated further that the
beneficiaries had received a total of
N246.8 million as stipends, while a
total sum of N29.9 million had been
remitted to the state as running/
management cost between February
and September 2013.
Governor Abiola Ajimobi, while
receiving the minister said, “when
you look at a state with about 10
million population and we are saying
only 1,000 or 2,000 people have
benefited, to me, this is terribly low.”
The governor also advised that such
a life-transforming programme
should be done without any political
According to him, if the Peoples
Democratic Party-led Federal
Government discriminates against
other political parties in the
management of SURE-P, its aims
would be defeated. Consequently, he
called for the setting up of a
committee comprising
representatives of both the Federal
Government and state governments
in each of the 36 states of the
federation that would run the
He also said that such committee, if
constituted, would ensure synergy
between the Federal Government and
the state government on the SURE-P
scheme and other similar
empowerment and poverty alleviation
programmes of the states.
“I also like to suggest that we have
synergy. When I say synergy, I do
not so much like the idea of SURE-P
being managed without having a
committee of SURE-P with that of the
state government that will regularly
meet and monitor progress,” the
governor said.
“What I will, therefore, like to suggest
is that if we can quickly increase our
rate of penetration and impact, and
the quantum of participants, it will
be better,” Governor Ajimobi said.

GEJ just can't stop proving critics wrong,but this APC governor was quick to play down the impact without accounting for what he has done with his share
