As part of his efforts to tackle the high rate of poverty and provide means of livelihood for his constituents in Baruten LGA, the House of Representatives member representing the good people of Baruten/Kaiama Federal Constituency of Kwara State, Hon. Mohammed Omar Bio, has facilitated the provision of empowerment tools to youths and women in Baruten LGA as part of social responsibility initiative of the NIGERIAN PORTS AUTHORITY. 

Distributing the tools to the beneficiaries on Saturday March 06, 2021 at Ilesha-Baruba in Baruten local government area of the state, the lawmaker, Hon. Omar Bio, who was represented by Alh. Abdulmumini Yakubu, said, the choice of empowerment tools was at the instance of the economic situation and the level of poverty in the society, noting that youths' unemployment and abject poverty is in the high side, especially in this part of country.

The lawmaker, according to his representative, also appealed to the youths not to venture into activities that are inimical to societal peace and norms, adding that stealing and robbery as the last resort to lack of jobs is not only illegal but immoral and strange in Batonu culture.

Hon. Omar Bio further commended constituents and particularly members of the APC in Baruten and Kaiama and the state in general for their prayers and unalloyed supports to the President Muhammadu Buhari's federal government and Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq led administration in the state, stressing that they (elected office holders) will not relent in their efforts to bring real dividends of democracy to the people.
