He said that the State Government had earmarked about N31 million for the purchase of other items this year.


Tsamiya said that “part of the money would be used for the purchase of 16 motorcycles for workers.

“Over N24 million of the money would be used for the purchase of spaghetti production machines, to intensify the empowerment of the womenfolk”. (NAN)
