Sen. Ahmed Lawan of Yobe North has empowered 6,766 members of his constituency with farm machinery and other entrepreneurship materials.

Our correspondent reports that the machinery include 36 tractors, 13 rice mill, 10 rice planters, 302 harvesters and 2000 sprayers.

Other vehicles and materials distributed included 60 cars, 250 motorcycles, 2,226 water pumps, 1,497 grinding machine and 1,800 pots and stoves.

Speaking at the distribution exercise in Gashua, Lawan noted that empowerment creates jobs and promotes self-sufficiency.

He promised to always attract federal projects and programmes in the constituency and the state at large.

Lawan, who was the President of the 9th Assembly, commended Gov. Mai Mala Buni for his support and purposeful leadership in the state.

He thanked his constituents for their mandate, understanding, resilience and cooperation even in during difficult times.

In his remarks, Buni said Lawan’s empowerment initiative was in tandem with various policies and programmes of the state.

He, however, cautioned the beneficiaries against selling the equipment, saying they should use them judiciously to earn a leaving.

A beneficiary, Lawan Bulama, expressed his gratitude to Lawan for the empowerment, saying it would improve his living condition.
