Coronavirus: Governors wives distribute palliatives in Northern Nigeria

By Priscilla Campbell, Minna

Northern Governors’ Wives Forum has distributed palliatives to indigent and vulnerable groups in the 19 Northern states.
Members of the forum agreed to reach out to vulnerable groups in each of their various states between Friday the 1st and Saturday May 2, 2020.
In a statement by the chairperson of the Forum and wife of Niger State Governor, Dr. Amina Abubakar Bello, over 3,000 beneficiaries were provided with food items to ease their hardship during the lockdown.

“It is evident that this is not an easy period for all of us Nigerians, especially those among us who are in dire need; therefore these palliatives are targeted at assisting such people to cushion the effect of the economic hardship caused by the pandemic."
On the need to reachout to the less privileged during the fasting period, the group stated, "As we go through the month of Ramadan, we implore the more able amongst us to help needy Nigerians through this difficult period."
