Egoh said that  he recently empowered over 300 widows from his constituency in soap-making, shoe-making, book-keeping and other entrepreneurship programmes for them to be self-reliant as fulfilling parts of his electioneering .

“I did not only support them in the entrepreneurial programmes, I also give them financial assistance for them to invest in such skills they had acquired, “he said.

Aside the sponsorship of the widows, Egoh said he had organised free eye tests for the people of the constituency.

He said that he had also donated tricycles, grinding and sewing machines some of the residents in the constituency.

The representative also said that he had donated three transformers, free school uniforms for public students, motorcycles and deep freezers to the people in his constituency.
