Igala Economic Summit

“Where did we go wrong and how can we get Igala land thriving again? These are some of the questions agitating a generation of Igala Sons and daughters across the world. From the Americas to Europe to Asia and to the Pacific and the Oceans and at home in Africa. The craving for an agenda that can instigate progressive development has never been more imperative.

There is therefore an urgent need to objectively address these socio-economic and political problems that plague Igala land. A key step to achieving this objective is the convoking of a regular economic summit to develop and implement an IGALA DEVELOPMENT AGENDA (IDA) that will set in motion, the machinery for the translation of the peoples’ hopes and aspirations into an emergent reality.”

Media watch: SSA Pledges Succour for Rural Women

By Innocent Idajili
The newly appointed Senior Special Assistant to Kogi State Governor on Rural Women Development, Mrs. Zanaib Mohammed, has said that her priority would be to empower rural women and reduce poverty to the barest minimum in the state.
Entrepreneurship development of women, she revealed, would be placed on the front burner in the collective efforts to free rural women from the shackles of poverty.
According to her, empowering women to go into business for sustainable development would be the panacea, against high scale poverty that is currently ravaging the land.
The Senior Special Assistant who has spent barely a year in the country, having lived in Britain for 24 years, said”there is no basis for comparison between African women and Western women as they are poles apart”.
According to her, some of the things one sees as a rich man’s wealth in Africa are necessities of life in the advanced world.
She, however, commended Governor Ibrahim Idris, for creating women development projects, saying the “government is on the right path, first by identifying the gap and creating the enablement to enhance the living standard of the rural women”.
