Zakkat, clothing materials and food are just few of the many materials Sokoto state government is giving out to support the less privileged during the Ramadan season.
In the same vein, wealthy individuals in the state are competing to outdo one another in the philanthropic gesture.
In a chat with the pressmen this morning, member of the state House of Assembly Alhaji Bello Ambarura commended state government and the good people of Sokoto.
“We are in a period of Ramadan, a time in which everyone needs to engage in one or more sacrifices that will attract better reward for our deeds.
“The state government has done a lot following its capacity to bring succour to the people by providing 100 bags of rice to each of the 87 districts in the 23 LGAs.
“This is a gesture committed to support no fewer than 100,000 persons across the 87 districts of the state in order to uplift their living conditions.
“As such, I appeal to wealthy individuals to emulate such commitment in order to encourage and support government’s dedication towards alleviating the hardship within the society,” he said.
