Mumu chai!Chinwe Ugwu empowers women with headpans, shovels and men with wheelbarrows on hire purchase

empowerment programme
The Caretaker Chairman of Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu State, Mrs Chinwe Ugwu who received social media backlashes with her empowerment programme a few weeks ago is at it again. It was reported that Ugwu enraged social media users after photos from her youth empowerment and poverty alleviation programme emerged on Twitter in January. She was seen in the photos dolling out wheelbarrows to youths in her local government area on hire purchase. She seems not to be deterred by the criticisms that trailed her previous action and is forging ahead in her mission to make ‘life better’ for her people. New photos of Ugwu’s recent empowerment programme emerged on the internet today (Tuesday) and it has set tongues wagging on social media again. The local government chair could be seen in the viral photos presenting headpans and shovels to local women as empowerment materials. 
South East Trends shared the photo on Facebook with the caption: 
“Weeks after she gave out wheelbarrows on hire purchase to her people, Hon Chinwe Ugwu the Caretaker Chairman Nsukka Local Government, has empowered women with a shovel, Head pans and Trowels.”
A Facebook user who shared some of the photos from the scene wrote; 
“No #Movement
Ooh my God! What a disgrace?
Wickedness in high places…..
Wicked #Nigerian Politicians…
Again Hon. Chinwe Ugwu. Nsukka LOCAL Government Chairman Shares 50 Head pans, 50 Shovels, and 20 Trowels as an Empowerment….
What is wrong with these people? The same woman who shared Wheelbarrow a few weeks back and called it Empowerment?
“Very clueless set of Politicians from Enugu North, Giving them head pan and #Shovel, encouraging them to suffer more.
“We are in a wicked world, Where our #Politicians make you hungry and give you food, they bite you and tell you sorry…
“Madam Chairman why Encouraging Hardship?… Please can you start by giving one of those #HeadPan and #Shovel to your children to go out and carry #Block and concrete….
“I don’t understand this again… Are you encouraging women to involve in hard labour?
This one is not empowerment again, it is just Enslavement.
Can you try this “rubbish’ in #Anambra? They will use it and break your head. Nonsense….
“You #Politicians of #EnuguNorth have the guts to subject my people because they have accepted to live a life of poverty and suffering if not how dare you to try this #Shit…..
“Who even gives this woman ideas? May all your generations and that of those who are behind those ideas go into Hard Labour ….
“#Nonsense…… I #Senator is angry but can’t do anything….. No problem “Make we de roll” one day I will grow and come back to that town and stop this #Rubbish….“
