Kwara State Government has suspended its bridge employment program, tagged Kwara Bridge Empowerment Scheme, KWABES, with immediate effect in order to allow for a review and overhaul.
The suspension was contained in a statement by the Secretary to the Government of Kwara State, Alhaji Sola Isiaka Gold, issued at the weekend in Ilorin.
Alhaji Gold said the review was necessitated by the fact that the scheme was no longer meeting its objective of getting youths into employment coupled with the current financial challenges confronting the state government.
The SSG said corps members under the suspended scheme may be recalled as soon as the state government completes the review and comes up with a more sustainable development empowerment programme.
Alhaji Gold emphasized that KWABES was a one year bridge empowerment scheme created in 2011 but was extended by the Kwara State Governor, Alhaji Abdulfatah Ahmed to allow corps members more time to secure permanent employment while earning an allowance from the government.
