Eid-el Kabir: Matawalle donates N200m rams, cows to constituent 

The former governor of Zamfara state, Bello Matawalle, has approved the sum of N200 million for the purchase and distribution of cows and rams as well as cash to various categories of people in the state.

The state publicity secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Yusuf Idris, said in a press statement made available to Blueprint Sunday that the gesture is to enable beneficiaries to celebrate the 2023 Eid-El-Adha festival with ease.

Matawalle, who is the leader of the APC in the state, directed the state APC leadership under its chairman, Hon. Tukur Umar Danfulani, to handle the distribution so that all those penciled for the animals and money receive their share in good time for the event.

“Under the arrangement, APC members and loyalists, women and youth groups,  associations and selected individuals throughout the state will equitably receive their shares,” Yusuf


Others include orphans and the less privileged, party supporters, Islamic scholars, media practitioners, and social media handlers, among others.

The party chairman thanked former Governor Mohammed Matawallen Maradun for the gesture and said it is coming at the right time, noting that the times are hard for many people in the state and so the gesture will go a long way in cushioning the effects of the current hardship.

Danfulani said a committee has been sat up  to ensure that all target beneficiaries got their shares.

He urged other well –to- do members of the society to emulate the former governor in the drive which immense benefits will come to them both in this world and the hereafter.

Matawalle also urged Muslims in the state and the country to intensify efforts of worship in the first 10 days of Zul-hajj to seek for Allah’s intervention to end the security challenges facing Zamfara and other parts of the country. 

He solicited for special prayers for the successful implementation of the renewed hope project initiated by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the benefit of Nigerians.
