The programme initiated and executed by the Member representing the Constituency, Hajiya Binta Bello, who is also the Minority Whip of the House of Representatives, also has some beneficiaries of the programme from Billiri/Balanga Federal Constituency of the State.

The two constituencies make up the four Local Government Areas that constitute Gombe South Senatorial zone.

Making the presentation at the graduation ceremony, Hon. Binta said the women underwent training in seven different skills which include soap, shampoo, room freshener, detergent and curry making, under the Binta Women Empowerment and Community Development Programme.

Hon. Binta Bello called on the beneficiaries to make judicious use of the trade they learnt and organize a step-down training for others in their various communities.
