A member-elect to the House of Representatives on the platform of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), to represent Magumeri, Kaga and Gubio Federal Constituency, Borno state, Hon. Usman Zannah, Saturday distributed bags of rice, sugar and other assorted relief items worth millions of naira as part of Ramadan gifts to the good people of his constituents.
Presenting the items for onward distribution to thousands of families/Household, Zannah emphasized that it’s his tradition for the past years to assist his people in need irrespective of where they come from during Ramadan and other festive period.
He said the entire month of Ramadan in essence, is a celebration of the Quran’s revelation, which is described as a “Guide and Mercy for those who do good.” (31:3 Holy Quran).
“Although, i am yet to be inaugurated as Member House of Representatives at the Green Chamber, i find it worthy to assist people of my constituents with food stuff, Cash and clothings to complement the Ramadan Iftar.
” My people have been very good to me, that is why they came out enmasse and voted for me in the February 2019 general elections, therefore what ever assistance I rendered is not worth of the mandate and trust they bestowed on me to represent them.
“This is not the first time I have been assisting my people especially those in distress, this time around as usual, I decided to give them bags of rice, sugar, clothing materials and even cash to cushion their hardship, especially those at the grassroots.” Zannah said.
