The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Farouq, who disclosed this in a statement her Special Adviser on Media, Nneka Anibeze, in Abuja on Sunday, said the grant is expected to improve their economic well-being and also take care of their families.

According to her, Farouq revealed this when she launched the Federal Government Special Cash Grant for Rural Women at the Fulani settlement of Hutawa in Kebbi State.

“I am delighted to see that these Fulani women are being taught the modern methods of yoghurt production using cow milk. This will go a long way in empowering them to be self reliant and able to provide for their families,” the statement quoted Farouq saying.

“I enjoin all the Fulani women who have received this training by the Kebbi state government to put it to practice as this will also improve the economic status of not just the women but the state and country at large.” it added.

”May God bless and keep Baba Buhari for giving me this money. Now I will go and buy Fura and also start a cattle rearing business,” she said.
