Senator representing Gombe Central Senatorial District, Muhammad Danjuma Goje, Wednesday distributed 500 tricycles (Keke NAPEP) and 1,000 motorcycles to his constituents in Gombe State.

Speaking at the flag-off of the distribution at his Gombe residence, Goje said the donation was borne out of his quest for community empowerment to support youths and women in his constituency.

Represented by a former speaker of the State House of Assembly, Abubakar Sadeeq Kurba, Goje explained that the gesture was part of his efforts to fight poverty while empowering the masses in his constituent to create job opportunities for youths in the area.

The senator added that such empowerment programmes would reduce the rate of unemployment among youths and encourage productivity.

He called on the beneficiaries to make good use of the items, adding that many youths and women would continue to benefit from such interventions.

Our correspondent reports that the items, which cost over N920 million were distributed free of charge to people of the constituency in Akko and Yamaltu/Deba Local Government Areas of the state.

According to the template, each beneficiary from the ward and LGA level got one tricycle each, while a beneficiary in each polling unit across Akko and Yamaltu/Deba LGAs, got one motorcycle each.

“This donation of 1000 units of Boxer motorcycles and 500 units of tricycles today is one among thousands of gifts that we have been dashing to the people of Gombe central.”

“These items were given out to each of the beneficiaries free of charge and it is not a loan or a facility from anybody and nobody is expected to be settled or compensated by any beneficiary,” he said.

Goje added that over 5000 members of his constituency have recently benefited from his empowerment program, which includes the zero-hunger project and funds distributed for use as capital as well as foodstuff distributed at the starting of this Ramadan.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Rose Danjuma, said that the Keke NAPEP given to her will help in supporting her family and other relatives.
