She further encouraged them to utilize the items to enhance their finance, support their families and contribute to the economic development of the state.

While enumerating some of the items distributed including gas cylinders, driers, sewing machines, and freezers amongst others, Mrs Makinde appealed to the beneficiaries not to sell off the equipment but use it for personal benefits.
