Goat Empowerment in Katsina: Governor Masari recently was a subject of controversy. In August, he distributed 720 high breed of goats worth N104 million to 240 women under its Women Empowerment Scheme. Each of the 240 women selected across the 34 local governments was given two female goats and one male goat. The animals, which were purchased in Niger Republic, were highly reproductive and good for breeding. ''The goats are also insured for one year and veterinary officers will be going round in all the local governments to provide medication to the animals if the need arises'', Alhaji Abdulkadir Nasir, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Economic Empowerment said.
