Over 40 women from Jos East and South Federal Constituency in the National Assembly have received sewing machines, courtesy of the member representing them in the National Assembly Dachom Baggos.
There was also the inauguration of a bridge linking two communities at Vwang and a town hall at Turu, all in his constituency.
Baggos, who said the gesture was to celebrate his birthday, emphasised that the beneficiaries of the sewing machines were carefully selected based on their interest in sewing and were trained before the donation was made.
The member who said he carried out the projects because of the passion he has for the people assured of more projects to uplift standard of living of the people.
The Senator representing Plateau North in the National Assembly Istiphanus Gyang said such projects would restore the confidence of the electorates in the Democratic process and improve voter turnout during elections.
Senator Gyang lamented the Security challenges facing his Constituency, which he said had been on for over two decades and called for the establishment of State Police which he said has the support of other State governments.
A special adviser in the last administration in the State Mr Yakubu Jang, who shares the same birthday with the member, applauded the gesture, noting that some people hide under challenges facing the country not to perform.
Jang said with such gesture, there is hope for the country and advised others to emulate him by going to the Constituencies to know about their plight in order to address their needs.
The traditionla ruler of Vwang, Da Gyang Balak thanked the member for the gesture and charged all elected officers to always say the truth and protect their Constituencies.
