Rep. Yusuf Gagdi (APC/Plateau) has donated 400 rams and N20 million to his constituents ahead of the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

Mr Gagdi, who represents Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency of Plateau, presented the items on Friday in Dengi, Kanam Local Government Area.

The lawmaker said the gesture was to ensure that his constituents, particularly the less privileged ones, celebrate Sallah with ease.

”The goal is to assist the less privileged members of my constituency to celebrate. It is a yearly ritual I have sustained since 2015.

”This year’s celebration came at a time prices of foodstuffs and animals have skyrocketed, hence the need for me to intervene. The 400 rams and N20 million will assist,” Mr Gagdi said.

The lawmaker advised his constituents to use the festival to pray for peace in Plateau and Nigeria and assured them of quality representation.
