What is empowerment?
Cheta Nwanze

Nice piece and I agree with you on the aspect of measuring success of these schemes. However, the people of Benue state would benefit more from better policies that ensures security of farmers and crops as most people have been displaced from thier homes and farms due to the cattle herdsmen. The anti grazing bill has been in the state house of assembly since last year and nothing has been done about that bill neither has he solicited for troops to be sent to villages where this incessant killings take place. Empowerment does not always need to come through these “dumb” schemes, policies empower us better.
