Kabiru Amadu, a member of the House of Representative from Zamfara State has astonished many after photos of his empowerment program surfaced online.
The lawmaker is seen distributing old pressing iron and ropes to the people of his constituency in Gusau/Tsafe Federal Constituency, Zamfara State.
The shocking photos have left social media users ranting.
In some photos that have since gone viral on the internet, the items were displayed at a distribution center in the constituency, ready for disbursement to the beneficiaries.
Social media users have blasted the politician, as they had expected more from him instead of sharing items as detergent and iron to empower his people, even with the millions allocated as constituency funds.
Many wondered what detergent and iron will do in helping his constituents overcome the crippling poverty level in the north and survive this pandemic.
Speaking at the ceremony in 2019, Mai-Palace said that the project was aimed at complementing the state government’s efforts at tackling unemployment and poverty, especially among women.
