A Chairman of Obanliku Local Government Area of Cross River State, Evangelist Margaret Inde has empowered a group of farmers in his constituents with a hoe, cutlass and one tuber of yam, each.

According to viral reports, the Local Government Chairman on the 30th anniversary of the creation of the Obanliku LGA handed the items over to the farmers during activities which also covered the celebration of the New Yam festival held on Friday, August 27, 

However, social media users have expressed displeasure after some photos of the empowerment scheme surfaced online, with some criticising Mrs Inde’s gesture while others blamed the able-bodied men who lined up to accept the items from her.
