LAWMAKER representing Keffi East Constituency at Nasarawa State House of Assembly, Alhaji Abdulaziz Danladi, on Tuesday distributed wrappers and food items worth over N2 million to his constituents.
This, he said, was in the spirit of Eid-el-Fitr and to cushion the effect of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Danladi, while distributing the items in Keffi, urged the beneficiaries not to sell the items but use them to improve on their standard of living.
The lawmaker presented the items which included 500 pieces of wrappers to women, 150O face masks, rice, spaghetti and cash.
“Today, I deem it necessary to provide five bundles of wrappers as each bundle contains 100 pieces of wrappers making a total of 500 pieces of wrappers.
“This is to put smiles on the faces of the disadvantaged women within my constituency in order to better their lives.
“I have distributed many bags of rice to the people of my constituency, including persons with disabilities, all was aimed at improving on the standard of living of the people of the constituency, ” he said.
According to Abdulaziz, the 1,500 face masks distributed was part of my commitment to contain the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
“It is in view of this that I want to call on the people of my constituency, the state and Nigeria at large to adhere strictly to the government directives and health experts advise against Coronavirus.
“Such as regular hand washing with soap under running water, use of face masks, use of hand sanitisers and social distancing to prevent spread of the virus.
“This is also in the interest of our health and for the overall development of the state and the country at large,” he said.
Abdulaziz solicited for continued support of his people to enable him succeed in the task ahead of him.
He called on them and the people of the state to support the state government policies and programmes in order to enjoy more dividends of democracy.
The lawmaker also urged the people of the constituency and Nigerians to live in peace, be law abiding, respect constituted authorities and tolerate one another for development to thrive.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that some of the beneficiaries who spoke at the event thanked the lawmaker for the gesture and prayed God to reward him abundantly.(NAN)
