Kogi State Security Adviser, Commander Jerry Omodara (rtd) has given scholarships to three Bunu Students as well as distribution of farm implements and foodstuffs to farmers in Bunu District of Kabba-Bunu Local Government Area.

The Security Adviser said the gesture was part of his usual practices to give back to the society particularly at a time the country is going through economy hardship.

According to him, the procurement and distribution of the farm implements to the farmers will go a long way to assist them in that regards.

He noted that the efforts are also geared toward ameliorating the hardship due to the removal of the petroleum subsidy which has made prices of goods and services to skyrocket and made such implements out of the reach of the peasant farmers in the area.

He urged the people should keep hope alive as the Federal Government under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is working hard to bring succor to the people as he is aware of the hardship Nigerians are going through due to the subsidy saga, stressing that each state of the federation has been given five billion naira to cushion the effect of the removal of the petroleum subsidy.
