Immediate past Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Bello Matawalle, has donated N200 million to various categories of people in the state for the Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.
This is contained in a statement signed by the state Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Tukur Danfulani, issued in Gusau on Saturday, 24 June, 2023 by the state Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Yusuf Idris.
Danfulani, who is the Chairman of the Distribution Committee said that the beneficiaries included members, stakeholders of the party, women, youth groups and associations.
“Other beneficiaries were orphans and the less privileged, Islamic scholars, media practitioners, and social media handlers, among others.
“The gesture is aimed at assisting people to celebrate the upcoming 2023 Eid-el-Kabir festival with ease.
“The committee had already started the distribution of the money to all the beneficiaries,” Idris quoted Danfulani as saying.
Danfulani, who thanked Matawalle for the gesture described it as timely as it will cushion the economic hardship among the citizens in the state, especially at the grassroots.
The party Chairman assured that the committee would ensure that all the targeted beneficiaries receive the gesture before Wednesday.
