Bamidele, who was re-elected during the February 25 National Assembly election, expressed delight that the 25 per cent annual budgetary proposal by Tinubu for youth intervention programmes and the education loan would go a long way in tackling joblessness and poverty among Nigeria’s productive population.
The senator from Ekiti Central Senatorial District spoke in Ado Ekiti on Saturday during an empowerment training he organised for 700 trainees to expose them to entrepreneurial ventures and vocational skills development in the agricultural value chain, aquaculture, and post-harvest loss control.
Bamidele, represented by his Senior Legislative Aide, Bunmi Oguntuase, stated that the beneficiaries, drawn from the five local governments in the district, were carefully selected and trained based on their areas of interest.
