Presenting the palliatives to benefitting IDPs, Chairman of the group,Alh. Mu’azu Yusuf Dangaladima said, the gestured was deemed necessary as part of the group’s corporate social responsibility in order to ease hardship being experienced by the displaced persons.
” Our attention has particularly been drawn by a recent media report which disclosed the shocking condition of IDPs living in various uncompleted buildings in Gusau, the state capital”.
“It is on this basis that members of this group and some few individuals who are pro- Yari, the former Governor of Zamfara state, quickly swung into action and made contributions of what we have presented today.” Dangaladima said.
Speaking further, Dangaladima said similar programmes were carried out in IDPs taking shelter in Talata Mafara and Anka local government areas of the state by the group for victims of banditry.
In his remarks after the distribution of the palliatives, the Scribe of Saminaka area, Alhaji Lukman Garba Tela Gusau expressed appreciation for the gesture and further prayed Allah to reward members of the group.
