Basking in the spirit of sallah, the Sokoto State Government has disbursed 11 million naira for the purchase of cows for the provision of meat to over 4,000 orphans to celebrate Eid El-Adha day.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria reported that the Chairman of the State
Zakkat and Endowment Committee, Alhaji Lawal Maidoki, on Saturday said,
“N130,000 was given to each of the 85 districts in the 23 Local
Government Areas of the state.
“Each of the districts will buy a cow, slaughter it and distribute it
to 50 orphans each. The gesture is aimed at providing a sense of
belonging to the orphans during the Sallah festivities.”
The chairman averred that the committee has taken measures to ensure the judicious utilisation of the funds.

Maidoki further promised that the committee will monitor the
distribution of the meat to ensure that all the targeted children were
adequately covered.
He also appealed to the district heads to ensure equitable distribution of the meat from their end.
