A member representing Fagge Federal Constituency of Kano State, Muhammad Bello Shehu, has shared N5 million to the supporters of his party, New Nigeria People’s Party, NNPP as take off grants.

Speaking while disbursing the cash at an event held in Fagge Local Government area on Friday, the lawmaker, popularly known as MB Shehu, said the gesture was aimed at supporting them with grants as startup or invest in their existing businesses.

According to him, the money was shared to them in appreciation of their support and commitments towards his success and that of NNPP in general during the 2023 elections.

Mr shehu explained that 16 of the beneficiaries would be given N200,000 each, while 7 of them would get N100,000 each, just as each of 20 others would receive N50,000.

He added that the empowerment programme, which was launched on Friday with two wards of Fagge A and Yanmata Gabas, would continue monthly.

The lawmaker disclosed that the money was shared to the beneficiaries out of his monthly salary, which according to him, would continue with two wards each month up to December this year.

“This is not a constituency project. This gesture is out of my monthly salary as a lawmaker to support those that worked hard and support us towards our election success.

“They deserve more than this as this is a tip of the iceberg. These people were subject of mockery by the opposition. Today they are the one laughing and smiling at the opposition.

“This is a take off grants to youths and women who worked for our success. I have given them to invest in their existing businesses. Those that don’t have business, they should start up with the little grant we have given them,” he said.

Mr Shehu also said he had earmarked a lot of projects for his constituency, disclosing that there would be a grant and improved empowerment schemes for his constituents that would be a model to other lawmakers in the next few months.

Earlier in a remark, an associate to the lawmaker, Mustapha Isa, said Mr Shehu had his people in mind.

He assured the constituents that they would see more goodies with people-oriented projects that would improve their socioeconomic status.
