Ex-rep hails Buhari

The Punch - - NEWS - Sola Shittu, Benin

Aformer Deputy Chief Whip of the Fed­eral house of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives, Mr Pally Iri­ase, on Mon­day said the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s So­cial In­vest­ment Pro­gramme had brought gov­er­nance closer to the peo­ple.

Iri­ase, who rep­re­sented Owan Fed­eral Con­stituency, stated this at Otuo at the com­mence­ment of a skill ac­qui­si­tion train­ing pro­gramme for 300 women and youths in the con­stituency.

He claimed that be­fore the regime of the Pres­i­dent, Ma­jor Gen­eral Muham­madu Buhari (retd), Nige­ri­ans knew al­most noth­ing about so­cial in­vest­ment pro­gramme, and hailed the Pres­i­dent for in­tro­duc­ing dy­namism into what “the SIP is all about.”

he said, “What is hap­pen­ing to­day is the re­al­i­sa­tion of my dream to have our peo­ple trained in skill that will make them self-suf­fi­cient, that will help them to be­come en­trepreneur­s and al­le­vi­ate poverty from the Owan Fed­eral Con­stituency that I rep­re­sented un­til re­cently.
