The Chairman of Obanliku Local Government Area of Cross River State, Hon. Evangelist Margaret Inde, has empowered each pilot farmer in her constituency with a hoe, cutlass and one tuber of yam.
The LG boss handed over the items during activities to mark the 30th anniversary of the creation of the Obanliku LGA as well as celebration of the New Yam festival held on Friday, August 27.
The empowerment scheme has generated reactions across social media as the lawmaker was criticised for the gesture and the young men who accepted the items from her.
