” So far, we have been able to buy and distribute not less than 60 brand new motorcycles. 15 were presented to indigenous security agencies in Ibarapaland in the wake of the security crises that enveloped the zone while others were distributed to constituents in Eruwa and Lanlate towns. I had earlier given out not less than 20 Generating Sets, 15 Deep Freezers and supported our people’s businesses with cash. There’s an ongoing construction of a block of classrooms each at Temidire and Ojonamo, distribution of educational materials to Primary and Secondary School students as well as purchase of JAMB and WAEC forms for students.
