LG Chairman Empowers Villagers With Bicycles, Palm Wine Tapping Items by Ukpono Etuk

The Vice Chairman of Uyo Local Government, Amb. Ukai Udeme recently gave out bicycles, clothing and implements for palm wine tapping to some residents in villages of Uyo, Akwa Ibom state.

The empowerment items sparked outrage and concern among citizens who said that the materials would add little or no value to the lives of the recipient while others have argued that the villagers were empowered with the right and necessary items due to the fact that they depend on the traditional occupation for survival.
Last year, the Governor of Benue State,Samuel Ortom, was largely mocked and criticised after handing over branded wheelbarrows to the youths. Governor, the gesture is to make the youths self-reliant and self-employed instead of going around looking for non-existent white collar jobs.
