Kebbi State Government has commenced the distribution of food items to the people as palliatives to cushion the hardship of ongoing cash crunch and fuel scarcity in the state.         

Items distributed are gari, maize, guinea corn, beans, Rice, and millet to all the twenty-one local government areas of the state.       

The Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Babale Umar Yauri, flagged off the distribution exercise on behalf of Governor Abubakar Atiku Bagudu at the government’s store, (Bulasa) Birnin Kebbi, yesterday. 

 Babale Umar explained that the palliative materials consisted of the consignment from the federal government and those procured by the Kebbi state government. 

The SSG said Senator Abubakar Atiku Bagudu in furtherance of his benevolence, compassion, and love for the people of the state gave the directive for the release of the grains to chairmen of local government councils for distribution to their peculiar localities to serve as a relief to all communities 

The SSG added that separate relief materials would also be provided to victims of flooding in fourteen local government areas.

Already, he said, those affected in seven local government areas before now, have received such items to mitigate losses incurred from the flooding.   

In a comment, former Commissioner for Water Resources, and the APC candidate, Arewa constituency to the State House of Assembly, Alhaji Nura Kangiwa thanked Governor Atiku Bagudu for his consistent fatherly care to the people of Kebbi state.
