The lawmaker announced that the tobacco empowerment beneficiaries will surely value it more than those he gave federal jobs. A statement from the lawmaker's media office signed by Charles Kelechi Iteshi quoted the lawmaker as saying "What I am offering them as tobacco is widows mite but I am certain many of them would value it more than those employees that I attracted federal jobs from my constituency".
It was gathered that the 47-year-old Lawmaker insisted that youths, especially the elder men must be given the substance as they are actors in the electoral process that birthed his victory.
"The aged women and Our aged fathers and mothers in the villages are the ones who keep their voter's card intact and since I cannot reach all of them individually, those selected people mobilized to visit them should ensure each person benefits".
