Abstract


In the last four decades, Nigeria has been confronted with variegated problems-widespread poverty, political violence, corruption, natural disasters, HIV/AIDS scourge, various endemic diseases, communal clashes, unemployment, strikes, poor government performance, etc. Underlying these concerns is the need to create wealth and employment as a means of addressing some of the challenges facing youths, women and men. Thus, this paper focuses on wealth and employment creation among women in Idah Local Government Area of Kogi State. It argues that with the right enabling environment created by government, private/public partnership, training and affirmative action wealth and employment creation is a distinct possibility. Creating wealth and employment among women will help curb social vices like prostitution, crime, violence, theft, armed robbery.
Key words: wealth; employment; creation; women

Résumé: Au cours des quatre dernières décennies, le Nigéria a été confronté à des problèmes variés - la pauvreté généralisée, la violence politique, la corruption, les catastrophes naturelles, le VIH / sida fléau, de diverses maladies endémiques, les conflits intercommunautaires, le chômage, les grèves, de faibles performances gouvernementales etc. Sous-jacent à ces préoccupations est la nécessité de créer de la richesse et des emplois comme un moyen de s'attaquer à certains de ces défis auxquels sont confrontés les jeunes, les femmes et les hommes. Ainsi, ce document met l'accent sur la richesse et la création d'emplois chez les femmes dans le gouvernement local d’Idah, dans la zone de l'État de Kogi. Créer de la richesse et l'emploi chez les femmes contribueront à lutter contre les fléaux sociaux comme la prostitution, la criminalité, la violence, le vol et le bricandage à main armée.
Mots-Clés: richesse; employ; creation; femmes
