Jafaru Suleiman Ribadu over his distribution of wooden canoes to youths as part of his empowerment plans.
He said: “people are here commissioning quality constituency projects and all other development projects brought to other federal constituency of Adamawa state, in my home constituency (Yola south), they are giving out wooden canoes to empower people.
“This is not my first time to witness other federal lawmakers from the state distribute quality goods as empowerment to their people. We just witnessed how Namdaz distributed vehicles and others items to his constituents of Mayo Belwa, Ganye, Jada and Toungo; I noticed the tremendous improvement in the delivery of democracy dividends.
“When the next election comes, those that really worked do not need to bother with all manner of propaganda; these works would campaign for them.”
