The management of Jaiz Bank Plc, on Tuesday, donated food and non-food items to Governor Babagana Umara Zulum of Borno State for distribution to victims of resurgent attacks in Borno State.
The donation, according to a statement from the bank, coincided with a condolence visit led by the Managing Director/CEO Hassan of the bank, Mallam Hassan Usman.
Usman described the presentation as the Bank’s support to Borno State Government in the areas of livelihood to the internally displaced persons (IDPs).
Items presented include 600 bags of rice and 350 pieces of clothing materials.
“We are here to recognise the sacrifices you have been making and this we consider our widows’ mite to assist in ameliorating the suffering of the displaced persons in the state.”
The Bank wished for the mayhem experienced, especially in the Northeast part of the country, to come to an end “where we would have our one time peaceful Borno back to normalcy.”
In his response, Governor Zulum expressed his appreciation to the Bank.
“What matters is not the quantum of the materials, but the spirit behind it. We are eternally grateful to you, may Almighty Allah reward you, and may He take you back to your destinations safely.
“I want to assure you that the government of Borno State will support you.”
