Sen Manu donates food items to constituents to mark 50th birthday
Sen. Haruna Manu, representing Taraba Central Senatorial Zone, on Thursday, donated food items to his constituents to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal as he celebrates his 50th birthday anniversary.

Manu, the immediate past Deputy Governor in the state, noted at the event that with the harsh economic realities the nation was experiencing, every stakeholder should endeavour to give out no matter how small.
“The effects of subsidy removal are glaring and that is why I have decided to celebrate my 50th birthday by giving out to my people,” he said.
Gov. Agbu Kefas, who witnessed the distribution, commended sen. Manu for choosing to celebrate his 50th birthday with those who truly needed pallietives at the moment.
The governor urged other government functionaries and well placed individuals to cultivate the habit of reaching out to others so that the effects would be reduced.
“I want to congratulate Sen. Manu on his 50th birthday anniversary and commend him for choosing to celebrate by donating to his people.
“Those who give out can never lack because it always comes back to them naturally.
“Let me call on all government officials and well placed individuals to cultivate the habit of giving so the collectively, we can reduce the hardship on the masses and at the same time curb criminality in our midst,” he said.
