We have received the approval of His Excellency Gov. Mai Mala Buni to award contract for the procurement and installation of 500Kva power transformer and complete accessories for Nahuta Community in Potiskum.
Despite sharp drop in federal allocation due to COVID 19, the Gov feels that, people's basic needs should be attended to. In this season of fasting, high temperatures and movement restrictions, Gov Buni feels people should at least have electricity in their homes.
Affordable energy is one of the SDGs and we are commited to finding ways to encourage communities to switch to clean and sustainable energy. Thank you your Excellency.

This morning, Yobe SDGs team went out for sensitization at the traditional Quranic schools (Tsangayas) . Considering the peculiarities of Almajiri lifestyle of going house-to-house seeking for sustenance, in the middle of a global pandemic, we thought we should engage with the scholars and their students on personal protection and hygiene protocols.

BUNI MONEY AGENT IS NOT A LOAN SCHEME

Since the publishing of Buni Money Agents list, many people have been calling to ask if we are about to give loans to people.
Buni Money Agent IS NOT A LOAN SCHEME. Its a youth empowerment scheme in which we are allowed to select young people who would be trained to work as money agents.

Who is a money agent?

Money agent is the regular 'POS operators' who you see everywhere in town providing cash transaction services. The difference is that, BMAs would open accounts on behalf of GTBank and others. That means, they would be trained on and equipped with BVN enrolment machines.
Once we present them to GTBank and Money Express, our job is done!

How does a BMA earn money?

An agent earns money by charging customers for the services offered in each transaction. The bank also pays a fee for each account opened and for each BVN enrollment.

Is the Yobe State Government bearing any cost?

The entire program is at NO COST to Yobe State Government - except that of Basic logistics and organizing.

Because THIS is entirely a business venture, candidates enrolling for the program should know that their ability to attract more customers determines how much money they earn.

Goodluck buddies!

In a point of precautionary measures against COVID-19, the Coordination Office of the SDGs is the first in terms of testing and counselling against the COVID-19 to its 50 Contingents from PAN Learning Center, Kaduna. The BUNI AUTOMOTIVE 2020 is an advanced Automobile training in Mechatronics, Air-conditioning, Tyre Service for Mechanics in the State and all contingents are Healthy/Stable.

The Coordination Office of the SDGs is geared towards Health issues being third in the list of the 17 Global Goals of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This is a great achievement which needs commendation from UN, FG and the State respectively.

We also acknowledged the effort of the State Ministry of Health and Human Services for their prompt action and support.

Kudos to you, our highly Innovative, Courageous and Workaholic BOSS. Arc. Musa Sule Damagum for your great achievements in less than 6months.

The BOSS was so pleased meeting our men at Peugeot Automobile plant in Kaduna last Friday. He selected them at random and asked them to tell me what they learnt so far. He was dazzled by the level of detail each of them went down to explain to him what they would do to detect and fix a fault in a car.
At the class, he told them that His Excellency Gov. Mai Mala Buni is so proud of them and we all are. I told them that, his career is hanging on a balance with this program. He told them that, if they work hard and learn all that is there to learn at PAN, we would stand proud and say that our youths are a serious creed of people. And if given the chance, they would prove their worth. We seemed to be on the same page that BUNI AUTOMOTIVE 2020 is a litmus test for all of us and thatwe shall triumph.

The Mobile Communication industry is taking notice of our little efforts in aligning our teeming youths with opportunities . Airtel Nigeria who are leaders in the mobile internet market in the country, came visiting this morning .
We talked about so many collaboration/partnership opportunities which would give our youths something to do for a living. Thank you Mr. Khalid for finding time to be with us. Our motto is LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND.

Today we received donation of T-shirts and Face caps to Buni Money Agent project from our bankers (Polaris Bank) .
When I came, the first thing I told our bankers was that, we needed to redefine our relationship and build a mutual partnership that would help both parties attain their goals. I needed people who would support me to deliver on my mandate not money keepers. I am glad that, that engagement has started yielding fruits. We are hoping to also continue to build these type of relationships as we take on even more daunting tasks. We are trying to be serious in the things we do... and those who do business with us are taking notice.

Today, I signed on behalf of the SDGs, an MoU with National Bureau of Statistics and UNDP on data bonding. By this, we are hoping to build a robust system of data flow from MDAs. It would help us track activities of various govt agencies as they relate to SDGs. We would eventually setup an online dashboard that would allow us monitor and track SDGs programs and projects carried out by all govt agencies real time. It would be a one-stop point of checking how the state govt is doing in terms of delivery of the SDGs.

06/02/2020

We have the express approval of His Excellency Gov. Mai Mala Buni to deploy resource at my disposal to harness opportunities for our teeming unemployed youths and to give them something to live by. The two programs we currently run (BUNI AUTOMOTIVE and BUNI MONEY AGENT) are all better options to government employment. The average a money agent earns per month for instance, is 50,000 Naira.
Right now, we are concluding arrangements to partner with two global mobile phone manufacturing giants (SAMSUNG & TECNO) to train 200 Young (unemployed) Yobeans in GSM repairs. After the training, we would be giving them the standard tool kits as a starter pack for them to start out on their own.
The plan is to train 100 on chipboard, 50 on software and 50 (women) on screen and screen guard replacement.
We are hoping that the ripple effect of this would impact on many more than the 200 youths we would train.
These are the type of skills in demand today.

BUNI MONEY AGENTS UPDATES!
Selection exercise for BUNI MONEY AGENTS is ready to launch at the headquarters of Yobe South Senatorial zone-Potiskum.
Since the target group is youths, we decided to collaborate with Youths Assembly of Nigeria YAN to reach qualified candidates who be enrolled in the program.YAN has an organised leadership structure in all the 17 LGAs of Yobe State.We believe it provides an efficient channel through which we can get to interested youths directly.
YAN would be entirely responsible for nominating candidates in all the LGAs.
At the Zone B laugh in Potiskum , we expect nominated candidates to turn-up in person for identification, assessment and registration.
Immedietly after the launch, we shall be proceeding to Yobe North (Gashua) and then Yobe East (Damaturu) in that order.

A primary school by LEV's Architects of Amsterdam, built with compressed earth bricks in the open plain of gouronbourou, Northern Mali.About 75% of the material used here are recyclable and therefore sustainable. The building method is far cheaper than using sancreed blocks.
We are hoping to adopt this approach in all future SDGs construction projects in Yobe state. I'm also hoping that our Architects and Engineers would earnestly begin to promote this construction method in their practice.

We are hoping to achieve (at least) two major aims with the SANEF project.

1. Drive financial inclusion and bringing basic banking services (cash withdrawals, Deposit, cash transfer, account opening and BVN enrollment) to the door step of every community in Yobe state. This would also aid the ongoing cash transfer programs in the state.

2. We are also hoping to create jobs for our young men and women who would become sub-agents.

His Excellency Gov. Mai Mala Buni, directed that every project, or, program we take to his desk must have an employment, or, economic empowerment component to it.

We are commited to finding new ways of tackling poverty through unlocking the potentials of our youths and empowering them with high level skills that would enable them compete in the global labor market.

Ahmadu and Ibrahim left Damaturu at 6am today to fetch firewood some 26k km into the forest and are just returning now (at 5pm).That's a routine everyday. Each of their consignment goes for 3000 Naira when the demand is at peak.
This, to us at the Yobe SDGs, reinforces the belive that taking action on climate starts from tackling poverty. Young abled men like Ahmadu and Ibrahim - and there are many of them out there, must be supported with other vocational skills not only for them to stop the excruciating toil they go through everyday fetching firewood for sale, but to also to prevent them from cutting down trees as a means of livelihood.
