Ex-IGP donates N3m PPF to Jigawa

A former Inspector General of Police, Sulaiman Abba, has donated personal protective equipment ‎(PPE) worth N3 million to Jigawa to strengthen the fight against coronavirus in the state.

Presenting the materials to the state government Tuesday in Dutse, Sulaiman Abba said the fight against the pandemic by all was imperative, especially the well to do individuals in the society.

The ex-IGP who hails from Gwaram local government of the state, said the items to be shared among the 27 LGs consisted of facemasks, hand sanitisers, hand gloves, medicated soaps and hand-wash containers‎.

He said the gesture was made to support and protect health workers whom he said are the front liners in the fight against the disease to have adequate protection‎ from the pandemic while in the line of their duties.

Receiving the materials, the state Commissioner of Health, Dr. Abba Zakari said the items would be judiciously put to use as desired by the donor, saying, “No support is ever too small or too big as the pandemic has continued to wreck havoc across the globe.”
