A member of the Federal House of Representatives has provided the tools necessary for young people in Borno state to start their own cobbler businesses.
To hundreds of young people without jobs in the state, the legislator gave away local shoe-shining boxes and other supplies.
An indigenous person from Borno state posted images from the empowerment ceremony on Twitter along with criticism of the lawmaker’s behavior.
THE TWEEP WROTE; ”ONE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE SHARED SHOE-SHINING MATERIALS IN THE NAME OF YOUTH EMPOWERMENT FOR PEOPLE IN MY REGION.
WE’VE BEEN DEFEATED BY POVERTY BRO AND POLITICIANS TAKING THE ADVANTAGE.”
