The Speaker of the House of Representatives Rt. Hon. Abbas Tajudeen, Ph.D has empowered some of his constituents in Zaria Federal Constituency with tractors for farming, tricycles and motorcycles.

This is part of the Speaker’s efforts at empowering his constituents to be self-reliant.

While the tractors are expected to boost farming activities in Zaria, the tricycles and the motorcycles would enhance intra-city transportation in the Federal Constituency.

Speaking at the occasion, the representative of the Speaker who is also the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Speaker on Administration, Engr. Jamil Ahmad Muhammad, said in just about eight months, the people of Zaria benefited tremendously from the good works of the Speaker more than ever before.

Engr. Jamil added that there are many ongoing projects in the constituency facilitated by the Speaker, adding that the gesture would be extended to all the eight local government areas in Zone 1 and Giwa, where each local government is expected to benefit from at least eight projects.

He also disclosed that a campus each for the School of Nursing, Kafanchan and the State College of Education, Gidan Waya, would be established in Zaria to ease the difficulties young people from Zaria go through by traveling all the way to Kafanchan in their quest for knowledge.

Also, he said the Speaker would facilitate the establishment of a study centre of the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) in Zaria to make it easier for his constituents to access education as well as attracting a branch of the National Judicial Institute (NJI) to Zaria.
