Bilyaminu is the owner of Mr. Biya Farms Nigeria Limited in Jos. As an entrepreneur and a farmer Bilyaminus single handily sponsored the empowerment scheme in his own way to help reduce the drastic rate of unemployed youths in the streets.


The training was carried out in the 4 local government areas which include Bassa, L.G.A, Barikin Ladi L.G.A, Mangu L.G.A and Shandam L.G.A of Plateau state, and it provided theoretical and practical training to some one hundred young men and women on rearing broiler chickens.


While speaking with the newsmen on the empowerment scheme, Bilyaminu said “aimed at building young people’s skills so they can take their entrepreneurial development to the next level. The purpose of the program is to provide support to young entrepreneurs, half of whom are women, in starting, strengthening and managing their poultry businesses.”

He also added that these will help young youths especially those living without any source of making a living in having a source of income as well as help take them off the street for good, enabling them to becoming contributing members to the economic development of not just their society but the state and possibly the country as well.


At the end of the programme, participants were given 12 chicks, 1.7 kg of poultry feed  and a month vaccines which will help them in practicing what they are being thought during the end of the scheme.
