DAILY NIGERIAN reports that the lawmaker, who was represented by his PRO, Saidu Giwa Na-annabi, handed over the wheelbarrows to be beneficiaries in a very light celebration.

Speaking with newsmen, the representative of the lawmaker lamented that youth unemployment was a menace, not just in our society but the world at large.

“All of them used to hire wheelbarrow and push to earn their living, but now they have the opportunity of owning their personal wheelbarrows,” he said.

Mr Bello-Kasimu charged the beneficiaries to see the gesture as a challenge, and opportunity to grow, saying that he was also like them who suffered hard to finance his education.

He, therefore, called on the beneficiaries to use their strengths in order to harness their potentials, as he rightly said: “an idle man is devil worship”.
