The Lagos State Commissioner for Wealth Creation and Employment, Mrs Yetunde Arobieke, announced the figure while addressing the media in commemoration of the second year in office of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu at Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.

The Commissioner said that the partnership initiative of the State Government with the Federal Government in giving soft loans and grants as well as making empowerment initiatives have assisted greatly in bridging the skills gap, unemployment rate and poverty.

Specifically, the Commissioner reported that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the livelihood of residents, especially the indigent, was minimal because of the succour provided by the various empowerment initiatives embarked upon by the Ministry.

Mrs Arobieke said 8,000 residents were supported earlier this year, through a Special Grant for Rural Women in partnership with Federal Government. The beneficiaries are spread across all the 57 Local Government Areas and Local Council Development Areas.
