Lagos—The lawmaker representing Amuwo Odofin Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Hon. Oghene Egoh, has distributed empowerment items to widows in his constituency, to cushion the effect of the present economic hardship.
Egoh, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stressed that during the course of the empowerment program, the beneficiaries were taught vocational skills such as catering, soap making, perfume production and how to start small scale businesses that will help them become self reliant.
He said he chose widows because they have been greatly deprived and advised them to use the items judiciously to improve their living standard.
While distributing the empowerment items to the widows, the lawmaker’s wife, Grace, added that the program is a continuous one.
