The Managing Director of Delta State Oil Producing Areas Development Commission, DESOPADEC, Olorogun Williams Makinde has empowered 14 teenage girls in Warri and its environs as part of efforts to protect them against maltreatment.

He explained that the teenage girls he empowered were picked from the streets, hawking for their parents, just as he disclosed that he has been paying school fees of the girls, start-up for their parents as well as take care of their basic needs.

 

According to the DESOPADEC MD, five of the girls were trained in fashion/design and the other nine in hairdressing.
