The senator representing Niger East Senatorial District at the National Assembly, Senator Mohammed Sani Musa, has redeemed his N100 million pledge to support education of youth and women empowerment in Shiroro and Munya local government areas of Niger state.
The chairman of the Coalition of Shiroro Association (COSA), Comrade Usman Ibrahim Kuta, stated this at a press briefing in Kuta Tuesday.
