A lawmaker who represented Kaduna Central Senatorial district in the 8th National Assembly, Senator Shehu Sani has donated Fingerlings to a Kaduna based journalist.
According to the former lawmaker, the decision to donate the Fingerlings was informed by the need to help journalists overcome the devastating effect of COVID-19 that ravaged the world.
Speaking shortly after presenting the Fingerlings to the beneficiary who is the Secretary of Nigeria Union of Journalists, (NUJ), Kaduna State Council, Comr John Femi Adi on Friday, Senator Shehu Sani urged the federal and state governments to create financial pool via the Central Bank of Nigeria Bank of Agriculture and Bank of Industry for workers and businessmen to borrow money to invest in productive activities.
“Apparently, the Coronavirus pandemic has grossly affected the revenue base of government and income of individuals. So, I urge all workers, professionals and businessmen in the country to resort to any form of production that can help generate revenue and income outside the contemporary salary based jobs”, he said.
In his response, Comrade Femi Adi who was elated with joy said he never knew that Senator Sani picked interest in his recent Facebook post that he was diversifying into Agriculture.
“Today, I want to thank the Senator and Human Rights Activist immensely for the laudable gesture and fulfilment of promise by donating to me 5,000 fingerlings to boost my fisheries”, Adi said.
