Hon. Evangelist Margaret Inde, Chairman of Obanliku Local Government Area of Cross River State, has empowered farmers in her local government each with a hoe, cutlass and one yam tuber.
Inde gave out the items during activities to celebrate 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 empowernment scheme has elicited varying reactions on social media with many people criticising Mrs Inde’s gesture while others blamed the able bodied men who lined up to accept the items from her.
