Incarcerated leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky has flagged off the distribution of Ramadan palliatives to 111,000 Nigerians.
Performing the flag off in Kaduna Tuesday, Mukhtar Abdullahi Sherrif, a member of the Palliatives Committee said that while he was free, it was Sheikh Zakzaky’s tradition to distribute foodstuff during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
“Sheikh Zakzaky has always been giving out food to the less privileged when he was free and even while in detention, he has continued to do same, this year is no different.
“We are distributing these food items to cushion the hardship faced by Nigerians, Christians and Muslims alike.
“We are distributing these food packs to 3,000 people in each state of the country, as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja,” he informed.
Sherrif said the first batch of beneficiaries in Kaduna who will benefit on Tuesday are 600 persons.
“In ensuring that we adhere to medical experts advice on Curbing Spread of the CoronaVirus, we will be distributing 600 bags daily,” he said.
Items distributed included a 10kg bag of rice, milk, sugar, macaroni, dates palm, noodles and milo.
Some select journalists in Kaduna were among the first set of beneficiaries.
