THE senator representing Jigawa North-West district, Dr Abdullahi Danladi Sankara, has disbursed the sum of N36 million as Ramadan welfare packages to individuals and organisations in the 12 local government areas that make up the district.
Senator Sankara, who made the disbursement on Tuesday, appealed to his fellow constituents to use the Ramadan period to pray for the country and the state to prosper and for the youths to be shielded from evil tendencies.
He said the gesture was in continuation of his yearly support for the constituents, his supporters and well-wishers in order to ease their affairs during the holy month of Ramadan.
The money was expected to be shared among Babura, Garki, Gagarawa, Gumel, Gwiwa, Kazaure, Maigatari, Ringim, Roni, Sule Tankarkar, Taura and Yankwashi local government areas.
He said each council area was given the sum of N3 million.
