We Did Not Gift Cars To Youth - Kwara Govt

The Kwara State Government in a press statement  as denied an online publication claiming that the government gifted cars to youth groups popularly known as "Good Boys" in the state.

The Government on Friday on it official Facebook page described the story as fallacy and urge the public to disregard it.

We have become aware of an online story published today which falsely claimed that the state government distributed cars to a youth group referred to as ‘good boys’ in the state. For the avoidance of doubt, we maintain that nothing could be further from the truth. On the contrary, several youth groups, including the one referenced in the false story, benefitted like other Kwarans from the state government’s empowerment scheme under its Small and Medium Enterprises(SME) program. These credit funds were disbursed through micro-finance banks to beneficiaries in the state upon approval of their business-plan backed loan application.
At no point were vehicles issued directly to any youth group, individual or association under the scheme by the government. The public is hereby urged to discountenance the fake story as it bears no resemblance to the reality of the government empowerment scheme, conceived to move more youths and women into entrepreneurship”.
