The wife of the Bauchi State Governor (First Lady) was reported to have on Wednesday 23rd June, 2020 distribute 10 bags of sachet water to some selected women each, as part of an empowerment program in the State.
This development left many people from within and outside Bauchi State wondering about what could have motivated the First Lady to embark on this seeming show of shame.
The photos have been trending online over empowerment which so many people find it very funny and amusing at the same time.
Many are suggesting better package than the one giving by the First Lady will do for “Women Empowerment’.
As the gesture looks like a mockery of the office of a state governor, as even the wife of a good and focus Local Government Council Chairman can do better.
