Alhaji Maigari Bello-Kasimu, a House of Representatives member of the All Progressives Congress, APC, representing Jalingo, Yorro and Zing federal constituency of Taraba state, has distributed 14 wheelbarrows to the members of truck pushers association, zing branch to empower his constituency youths.

The law maker, who was represented by his PRO, Saidu Giwa Na-annabi, handed over the wheelbarrows to be beneficiaries in a very light celebration.

“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”.

The event was attended by some APC members, the leadership of the truck pushers and well wishers.
