The Zamfara State Government is to spend N280 million for this year’s annual Ramadan Feeding programme, the State Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Alhaji  Abdullahi Maharazu Talata Mafara, has said.

The Commissioner made the disclosure while flagging off the feeding programme at one of the designated centre in Gusau, saying the Ramadan feeding programme is one of the top priority of the State government.

Maharazu, therefore, warned cooks, supervisors and distributors against sabotage, saying that a high-powered  committee has been to monitor the programmes.

He maintained that the committee would not hesitate to cancel the contract of any cook or distributor found to be undermining the programme.

“The government this time around would not take negligence lightly as all necessary arrangements have made to make the process efficient and effective, there all parties involved must ensure the success of the programme,” he said.

He disclosed that 251 centres have been designated across the 14 local government areas of the state for the programme.

The Zamfara State Ramadan feeding programme was designed to assist the needy during the fasting period so as to have a seamless break of fast.

“To ensure delivery of quality meals to the fasting populace, a high powered supervisory Committee headed by Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Alhaji Sanusi Garba Rikiji would fully monitor the whole process,” he said.
