No fewer than 30 apprentices were sponsored to acquire a skill by Ar-Rahaman Empowerment Foundation.

They were also provided with working tools to start up their individual businesses so as to be self-sustained.

Working tools were presented to some of the apprentices at a ceremony held at NASFAT Hall in Osogbo, Osun State recently.

President of Ar-Rahaman Empowerment Foundation, Malam Mutiu Bamidele
said the group saw the need to help the youths to embark on productive venture and become successful in life.

He explained that apart from sponsoring the 30 youths through their apprenticeship, the group procured working tools worth N1.6 million
for the beneficiaries to be able to ply the skill they acquired and make legitimate income.

In his keynote address, the Editor of Saturday Tribune newspaper, Alhaji Lasisi Olagunju commended the Muslim group for the initiative
and urged the beneficiaries to make good use of the opportunity to succeed and also help others when they become successful.

Olagunju urged wealthy Nigerians to support the group to be able to do more for the youths and needy.

“When I met the members of the Ar-Rahaman
Empowerment Foundation and they told me that they want to empower some
youths, I felt that they themselves needed empowerment. Therefore, we
must support them to sustain this good initiative.”

Dignitaries at the occasion include the Baba Adeen of Osogbo, Senator Bayo Salami, former Chairman of Nigeria Labour Congress in Osun State, Alhaji Kayode Aliyu Afolabi, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Works, Engineer Nurudeen Adeagbo, Permanent Secretary of the State Universal Basic Education Board, (SUBEB), Alhaji Abdul Fatai Kolawole
and the Publisher of Aljezeerah magazine, Alhaji Dawood Ajetunmobi.
