Akwaocha Sensitization

The Delta State Government has reiterated its resolve to boost the economic status of women in the state. The Executive Secretary, Delta State Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency, Mrs Shimite Bello made the statement during the sensitization programme organised for Otu Akwaocha Ebuedo women of Ubulu-Uku at the Delta State Micro, Small and Medium Entrepreneurship Center  (Leather Works and Shoes Factory), Issele-Uku, Aniocha North LGA.

Mrs Shimite Bello assured the women that the state Government approved the training of over 200 women in the akwaocha skill after a long time for government to come to their aid. She buttressed the fact that  after the training, the women will be empowered with a modern and sophisticated Akwaocha weaving machine that is easy to operate and produce a fabric in a day as against the common one that is tedious and slow.
