Hon. Thomas Ereyitomi giving his speech
The member representing the Itsekiris, Ijaws and Urhobos of Warri in the Green Chamber at the Federal Capital City Abuja, Chief (Hon.) Thomas Ereyitomi, JP, has dished out empowerment items comprising Speedboats with new Yamaha outboard engines, fishing nets and tricycles worth over #50millions Naira to his constituents.
Hon. Ereyitomi made this donation Wednesday at the rice farm field in Warri in a well attended gathering of PDP faithful’s, saying he was concerned about impacting positively on the lives of the people by giving them these life sustaining items to start a life on their own instead of dishing out cash to them every now and then.
He said these items are the real source of making a living by the riverine people in the Warri Federal Constituency but express regrets that previous empowerment gifts found their way into wrong hands and charged the current beneficiaries to put their gifts into good and meaningful use to sustain themselves henceforth and continue to support his ambition to return to the House in the 2023 election on Saturday, promising to continue to fulfil his campaign promise and do more than what he has done now.
According to him, “this empowerment will also help to mitigate youth restiveness and other related social vices in the constituency and add value to the living standard of the people both financially and socially”, assuring that better things will come their way as he remain committed, focused and determined in delivering quality people’s oriented representation across the 3 Warri LGAs of Delta State”.
He told the people that he has succeeded in sponsoring a bill for the establishment of a Federal Institute of Fishery Research to be sited at Ogidigben and a Federal Polytechnic to be sited at Koko and both bills havey passed though the National Assembly and only awaiting Presidential assent by Mr. President.
Hon. Ereyitomi therefore tasked the people to remain faithful with him in his bid to return to House of Representatives.
