Lawmaker uplifts 150 physically-challenged
Beneficiaries of the programme were treated to a skills workshop by resource persons in bead making, millinery, tie and dye (Adire) making, and arts & crafts creation. They were also handed a cash donation of N5,000 each from Minimie Noodles to start a new lease of life.
According to the lawmaker, the programme is aimed at taking the physically challenged away from the streets and making them self-dependent. “I promised you during my campaigns that I will not be far from you and that I will start my empowerment with you. This is the beginning, it may be little but you can do a lot with it.”
Vice Chancellor of the National Open University , Prof. Vincent Ado Tenebe, promised all graduands automatic admission to acquire more knowledge on what they learnt and gave them one bag of rice each.
