Tinubu’s Minister Rolls Out Tricycles, Sewing Machines For Women Empowerment Programme, Nigerians Reacts

Nigerians on social media have reacted to the release of tricycles and sewing machines by the Minister for Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy Ohanenye, as part of her women empowerment scheme.

Ohanenye, in a post via her X handle, said the latest development was in line with an earlier resolution to reduce unemployment and ensure sustainable empowerment for women.

She announced that the distribution of the tricycles and sewing machines would begin from Abuja before extending to other states.

She wrote: “In practical fulfilment of my earlier resolve to reduce the rate of unemployment and also to ensure sustainable empowerment of women is the Introduction of the Pink Riders Transport Scheme and upgrade of our sewing factory.

“Today, I received the first batch of branded Tricycles and industrial sewing machines. The pilot scheme of these machines, especially the Pink Riders, will start from Abuja before we extend to other states.

“This is an era of walking our talks because Nigeria must succeed.”

However, many Nigerians have stormed the comment section of President Bola Tinubu’s minister, criticising her, with claims that there are better ways to empower women than giving out tricycles and sewing machines.
