The committee is chaired by the Sarkin Gabas of Abaji, Alhaji Kamal Adamu Shuaibu.
The monarch, while inaugurating the committee at his palace, said the high level of poverty among residents of the council informed the decision to set up the committee.
He observed that the poverty alleviation committee would create an opportunity for the idle hands especially the youth to be engaged in various kinds of entrepreneurship programmes.
According to him, the committee would intensify efforts in reaching out to the federal government, donor agencies as well as some international donor organisations to support them.
“If some of these youths will have something doing, it would no doubt divert their attention from engaging in social vices in our society. Because, a situation whereby there is high level of poverty in a society, the next thing for the youth is to either engage in political thuggery or other crimes,” he said.
Responding on behalf of the committee, Alhaji Kamal Adamu Shuaibu, commended the monarch for the initiative and for finding them trustworthy to carry out the assignment.
