Youwin Awardees Protest Non –Payment Of Second, Third Tranches
The city of Jalingo, Taraba state was yesterday brought to a standstill as awardees of the Youwin three Programme took over the streets following the alleged refusal of those in charge of the programme to pay the awardees second and third tranche of their funds.
The awardees who came out in their numbers expressed dismay at the lukewarm attitudes of those handling the programme.
Armed with placards with various inscriptions, the awardees felt sad that the organisers of the programme have refused to pay after compelling them to borrow funds to start their various businesses.
The awardees who claimed to have only been paid the first tranche since January and were asked to source for funds elsewhere to complete their business felt sad that organisers of the programme have kept mute since then.
