His goal is to empower humanity and lift it out of the poverty zone and develop human capital.
Women and youths from all six (6) Plateau North L.G.As attended an intensive two-day training on various agro businesses and production on Friday, January 26, and Saturday, January 27, 2024.

Additionally, they expressed their appreciation for the People’s Senator’s efforts to build human capital capability and urged participants to implement the training’s lessons and the starter pack—cash grants—judiciously.
Provost Federal Collection of Animal Health and Technology Vom, Dr. Jude Obi Okpara, was also there to honour the occasion.
In his speech, Senator Simon Mwadkwon—who was represented by Friday Bako, the People’s Senator—affirmed that in addition to the infrastructure projects he had decided to commission during his brief tenure as the Senate Minority Leader, he had also chosen to build human capacity by empowering and training youth and women. He also urged participants to diligently put what they had learned into practice. In addition, Senator Mwadkwon stated that if elected again in the upcoming rerun election, he will have much to offer the constituents.
Overwhelmed by the gesture, participants in their various statements expressed their gratitude for him and wished for victory on February 3, 2024, at the polls.
