Jamaatul Izalatul Bidiah Wasunan, JIBWIS, is determined to create a source of livelihood and development of entrepreneurial skills among its members, and is set to establish agricultural and skills acquisition centers across Nigeria.
Sheik Abdullahi Bala Lau, the president of the group says that it was high time the government and various groups focus on helping create wealth especially at this time of economic recession.
Lau who is on a national tour to interact with members of the Islamic sect across the country said that with the growing number of there members begging across the country which he put to about 20 million, “there is the need for the organisation to engage the teeming youths in agriculture, skill training in manufacturing and production of goods to help them to be self reliant and employers of labour.”
” We are determine to stop our people from roaming the streets begging, that is why we are making plans to establish agricultural and skills acquisition centres across the country.” He emphasised.
He revealed that the leadership of JIBWIS has already set up a 5 man committee under the chairmanship of Alhaji Mohammad Hassan the Gombe State Commissioner of Finance to provide the framework for the actualisation of the programme.
“We strongly believe that agriculture and skills acquisition remains the best option for job and wealth creation in order to overcome the present economic challenges.”
