A number of youth went home with motorbikes to be able to engage in transport business and cater for themselves.
A beneficiary, Olusegun Ologun told Vanguard reporters that this is the first time an appointee of Government is doing such in the area.
“We thank Hon. Fanwo for the good gesture. We are excited and happy. Now we don’t have to beg to feed again. No appointee of government has done this in our area here. You can see that he gave grinding machines to women also. This is commendable”.
