In Kano, 500,000 less privileged households will benefit from palliative care, according to Gov. Yusuf.



Kano State Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf announced on Monday that 500,000 less privileged households will benefit from the distribution of palliatives across the state’s 44 local government areas.

Governor Yusuf stated this during the official flagging off of the distribution of palliatives and other agriculture inputs to vulnerable, women, and farmers across the state’s 44 local government districts.

The Governor stated that the programme is intended to alleviate the hardship caused by the elimination of fuel subsidies across the country.

He stated that the gesture is also aimed at enhancing agricultural production in line with the state’s ambition of an agricultural revolution that will reduce the state’s reliance on federal funds.

He stated that a total of 297, 000 bags of 10kg rice and 160, 000 bags of 10kg maize would be distributed among the state’s 484 wards, with each receiving 565 bags of 10kg rice and 330 bags of 10kg maize.

The Governor stated that in order to ensure that the gesture reached the intended beneficiaries, he established a compliance committee at the state, local government, and ward levels to ensure that the distribution was carried out properly.

“This distribution of interventions is to help people, especially the vulnerable, get succour as people are going through a lot,” he says. We are aware of the condition that the masses are in.

“We believe that this gesture will not only help to mitigate the impact of subsidy removal and improve the harsh economic situation.” It will also improve our state’s fight against poverty.

“As you can see, we didn’t just stop at palliatives; we also included agricultural inputs to boost food production and create jobs.” It will also represent an agricultural revolution in food production, making the state less reliant on federal funds, according to the Governor.

He went on to mention orphanage homes, Tsangaya and Islamiyya schools, rehabilitation centres, hospitals, people with special needs, and junior cadre civil officials in the state as areas or centres chosen or selected for palliative distribution.

However, the products supplied include 297, 000 bags of 10kg rice, 160, 000 bags of 10kg maize, fertilizer, 250 units of pumping machines, and other farm inputs, as well as 2, 600 goats, sheep, and rams for women.
