Bauchi State Governor Sen. Bala Abdulkadir Mohammad has distributed 20 cows to Persons With Disabilities in Bauchi state in the spirit of Eid-Al-Adha celebration.
The Governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Barr. Ibrahim Kasim, at the Government House on Thursday, said that the distribution of 20 cows is not only for Persons With Disabilities (PWDs) but also to some selected groups for the same purpose.
According to him, the gesture is to enable the Poor and Less Privileged in the state celebrate the festival with members of their families.
He said the cows were meant for the target groups and warned those with the responsibility of the distribution to be guided by that.
The chairman of the agency for Persons with disabilities Hon. Ibrahim Mohammed commended the Governor for his concern for the poor and less privileged and PWDs, especially for those at the grassroots.
He also urged PWDs to pray for peace and stability in the state and Nigeria in General.
