Welcome to Kwara State Bridge Empowerment Scheme
KWABES was designed by the new administration of Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed to provide employment for a minimum of 2000 unemployed youths within the first 100 days of his administration and also generate reliable data on unemployed youth in the state with a view to finding lasting and sustainable solution to the menace.
The Employment Scheme should therefore not be mistaken for political patronage as it is meant for all youth residents in the State, including non-indigenes irrespective of party affiliation. The Governor told the political appointees of government’s desire to avert youth restiveness as a result of joblessness by creating a dependable platform to engage the youths in productive ventures. This, he said, is the essence of the State Bridge Empowerment Scheme (KWABES).
