Tabiowo said the gesture is to cushion the hardship faced by his constituents and will benefit all segments of the society.



In a significant move to alleviate the challenges faced by his constituents, former President of the Senate, Senator Ahmad Lawan (APC, Yobe North), has announced his intention to distribute 9000 bags of essential grains to the people he serves.

The initiative, spearheaded by the Senator Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan (SAIL) Empowerment Foundation, comes as a collaborative effort between Senator Lawan’s team and both the Yobe State and Federal governments.

With the intention to ease the ongoing hardships endured by the people of Yobe North Senatorial District, this intervention is set to provide essential relief to the community.

The development was contained in a statement by Ezrel Tabiowo, Media Adviser to Senator Ahmad Lawan on Thursday in Abuja.

“The distribution will cover all 60 wards within the senatorial district and is scheduled to take place on Saturday at Filin Katuzu, Gashua, located in the Bade Local Government Area of Yobe State.

“The relief packages include a generous allocation of 6000 bags of rice and 3000 bags of millet, addressing the immediate food security concerns of the people”, the statement reads in part.

These beneficiaries span the entirety of the senatorial district, encompassing the six local government areas of Bade, Nguru, Jakusko, Karasuwa, Yusufari, and Machina LGAs.

The gesture is inclusive in nature, reaching out to all religious groups, communities, and Persons with Disabilities, underscoring the commitment to assist all segments of society.

In addition to this relief effort, Senator Lawan is also set to inaugurate the Federal Science and Technical College, Gashua, a noteworthy accomplishment aimed at advancing educational opportunities in the region.

The newly established institution is slated to conduct its first student enrollment later this year, with Senator Lawan scheduled to oversee the official handover to the Yobe State Government, in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Education.
