According to him, those to benefit from the gesture are groups considered as indigent and the people living with disabilities like the blind, the old, disabled and most vulnerable.

The federal legislature assured of an all-inclusiveness in the distribution processes for fairness and equity, saying that the government of president Ahmed Bola Tinubu is doing everything possible to end the current hardship experienced by Nigerians.

“This is the first of its kind in the constituency for considering every stakeholder in the exercise” he noted.
