Member representing Kachia/Kagarko Federal constituency, Hon. Gabriel Saleh Ha’ar, has empowered no fewer than 1000 youths and women with over N30 million for a better living.

The lawmaker said, it has become imperative to alleviate poverty in his constituency, in view of the hardship occasioned by the Covid 19 pandemic in the last two years.

While presenting the cash to the beneficiaries in Kachia local government on Friday, the member urged them to judiciously invest the resources given to them into the nation’s economy for growth and development.

“I can assure all the beneficiaries that with judicious use of this money, it will in no small measure boost the economy of the nation and encourage economic stability,” the lawmaker emphasized.

He however, disclosed that the empowerment programme was the fourth of its kind, which, according to him, started in 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022 respectively.

While speaking, Ha’ar noted that with judicious use of the funds, it would spur him to do more by empowering the youths and women in his constituency.

In his opening remarks, member representing Kagarko, Kaduna state House of Assembly, Hon. Nuhu Goroh Shadalafia, applauded the federal lawmaker for the gesture, saying that the empowerment programme was coming at the right time that the people are in need of such empowerment.

Shadalafia, who was the former Deputy Speaker, urged the beneficiaries to always support the lawmaker, himself and the Kaduna state government.

One of the beneficiaries, Halima Ibrahim, thanked the lawmaker for the show of love to them, promising to properly make use of the funds.

The empowerment programme which was in collaboration with the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution also had traditional rulers, politicians and other stakeholders in attendance.
