NASS Set to Partner World Bank for Benue Constituencies

Date:

For the betterment of his constituents, Prince Solomon Wombo, the lawmaker representing Katsina-Ala/Logo/Ukum Federal Constituency in the National Assembly is to partner with the World Bank-assisted Agro-Climatic Resilience in Semi-Arid Landscapes, ACReSAL, to harness the agricultural potentials of his constituents and better their lot. This partnership is intended to reduce the rate of unemployment and poverty in that axis of the state.

ACReSAL is a World Bank assisted Project that was set up to address the challenges of land degradation and Climate Change on a multi-dimensional scale in the Northern part of Nigeria.

Prince Solomon Wombo made this known when he led a delegation from his office on a courtesy call on the Benue State Coordinator of the ACReSAL Project, Victor Ama in Makurdi.

He stated that since he assumed office, he had been eagerly searching for strategic and worthy projects as well as organisations “that my office will partner with to bring development to my constituency and the state at large and ACReSAL Project seems one of them.”

Wombo reiterated the urgent need to set up small industries in his constituency; known as Sankera Area, “for the processing of the numerous agricultural raw materials that abound in my constituency as raw materials and to also prevent wastage of agricultural produce,” adding that this move will lead to “job creation and provision of gainful employment that will help reduce insecurity and lift many people out of poverty and lots more, in line with the objectives of the ACReSAL Project.”

While receiving the lawmaker, the State Project Coordinator of the ACReSAL Project, commended Prince Wombo for his readiness and willingness to work for the actualization of the goals of the project.

He informed the lawmaker that the ‘Component C’ of the ACReSAL Project has to do with Institutional Strengthening hence the project will need the support of lawmakers in passing relevant laws that will address the issue of Climate Change, improving the environment, protecting forests, reducing poverty, and protecting vulnerable groups in society among others.

The State Project Coordinator concluded by calling on the political class to key into the ACReSAL Project and bring the benefits to their people to better their lot.
