With two months left to serve her three years tenure as Ukwuani Local Government Chairman, Lady Benedicta Ndudi-Osakunih Izuegbu has decided to embarrass those who voted her into office with worthless empowerment materials.
The Mickey Mouse empowerment which took place in the local government field we gathered had more money budgeted for festivity than the materials she distributed to few selected farmers.
Mimicking Gov. Ortom of Benue State, Benedicta who’s eyeing the House of Assembly seat in 2019 brought in less than thirty wheelbarrows, grasshoppers sprayers and knapsack sprayers to distribute to the peasant farmers.
One of the indigenes Chukwutem Edoh who commented angrily on one of the social media pages retorted “this is nothing but an insult om our people. Wheelbarrows for farmers? They should just turn us to Aboki that push wheelbarrow nau?(sic). How many did she give her parents?
