“We prepare them with the basic required skills through training and later handed the participants with live goats and financial back up for full engagement.

“We carefully selected the participants haven identified their area of interest and needs, it is also worthy to state here that, this project was facilitated based on request, as I have always promised that any request from my constituents shall be given high consideration and within my capability/ capacity it shall be done,” the lawmaker wrote on his Facebook page.

However, this programme has come under scrutiny on Nigerians on social media.

“I’m not going to praise you or condemn this your goat empowerment but it’s insulting sharing goat as empowerment, I run through your page I see some good works, that’s why I can’t talk much but you can do more than just a goat. If truly you mean good for your constituency, how many goat will you give individuals that can alleviate poverty for there home. Let’s consult intelligent people before we embark on project. Don’t ask people around you they won’t tell you the truth because of what they will eat. I don’t pray for your down fall, if there’s shift in power they move to the next opportunity around,” Sulaiman Sheriff Adebayo wrote on Facebook.

Another social media user, Lawal Akinkunmi Monsur also berated the lawmaker for the project.

He also questioned why political office holders in Ibadan facilitate projects like “goats and gates.
