The senator said the empowerment materials were made available by the Ministry of Niger Delta Affairs but facilitated by him.
He said he feels the pains of the unemployed and that the government cannot tackle the problem alone hence, he facilitated the empowerment for the people of his senatorial district.
Urhoghide advised the beneficiaries of the items not to sell them, as they have no reason to be poor if they make judicious use of the items to better their lots.
Items distributed were motor cycles, tricycles, generating sets and sewing machines.
