Senator Mao Ohuabunwa, the lawmaker representing Abia north district at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly has been made a subject of mockery by social media users for empowering his constituents with frying pans.
Pictures of Ohuabunwa, 60, who serves on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party went viral on Wednesday where he was seen distributing frying pans to empower his constituents.
His ‘goodwill’, however, did not go down well with many Nigerians, especially social media users, who lambasted him for mocking his constituents with ‘ordinary’ frying pans.
