Sen. Yusuf Abubakar (APC-Taraba Central) has distributed about N10 million worth of empowerment items to his constituents.

A correspondent of the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) who monitored the distribution exercise said the items include 165 motor cycles, 60 electricity generators and 51 wheel chairs.

No fewer than 300 youths, women and people living with disabilities from across the zone, comprising five local government areas, benefited from the empowerment initiative.

Distributing the items in Bali on Sunday, the lawmaker said the exercise was aimed at empowering youths and women of the area to be self-reliant.

Yusuf observed that even though the primary duties of a legislator was to make laws for the wellbeing of the people, he found it necessary to contribute his widow’s might in alleviating poverty.

The materials were distributed to youths and women drawn from Gassol, Bali Kurmi ,Gashaka and Sardauna local government areas.

The legislator disclosed that the Federal Government has approved the construction of a ring road on the Mambilla plateau, which is a component of the multi billion Naira Mambilla hydro-power project.

Similarly, he said the Mararaba-Baissa-Abong-Nguroje federal road project was also included in the 2016 budget.

According to him, among other projects within his zone that were included in this year’s budget is Mutum-Biyu- Wase federal road project.

Yusuf thanked the people of the area for their support and appealed for more cooperation with the federal government to facilitate speedy development in the area.
