Adamawa State Poverty Alleviation and Wealth Creation Agency (PAWECA) has concluded plan to do away with poverty among the people of the state.

In preparatory to this, PAWECA has spent not less than N4.4 billion in empowering youths and women for self actualisation in the last couple of years.

The agency stressed it is working towards getting every Adamawa person gainfully engaged in three years.

Coordinator of PAWECA, Hajiya Aisha Bawa Bello stated this while addressing journalists on the activities of the agency.

She said PAWECA has achieved much in raising the status of the poor and vulnerable since the agency was revived in 2019 when Governor Ahmadu Fintiri took the mantle of leadership to wipe away the poverty of the people.

PAWECA is championing the revival of micro, small and medium enterprises, where the agency has empowered over 7,000 micro businesses across Adamawa State, and many have earned support grants to grow their businesses, the coordinator emphasis.
