Nigeria’s First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has flagged-off the distribution of palliatives to 2,400 less-privileged citizens of Kaduna State, including People With Disabilities (PWDs), orphanage homes, widows and women infected with HIV among others.

Senator Tinubu, who was represented at the flag-off of the palliatives distribution by the Wife of Kaduna State Governor, Hajia Hafsat Uba Sani, said the palliatives were designed to cushion the effects of economic hardship on the less-privileged across the country.

The First Lady said the President Bola Ahmed Tinubu-led Federal Government is working tirelessly to improve the economy of the country and therefore requires the patience and cooperation of the citizens to achieve the desired goals of delivering good governance to the people.

She, however, said the less privileged, poor, vulnerable and underserved people of Nigeria, especially People With Disabilities (PWDs) are dear to her heart, hence the need to distribute the palliatives, to assist them.

While urging the beneficiaries not to sell the palliatives, but use them to the benefit themselves and their families. She promised to sustain the assistance in Kaduna and across the Country.

Also speaking at the event, the Kaduna State Commissioner for Human Services and Social Development, Hajia Rabi Salisu, explained that the 2,400 bags of rice donated by the First Lady, Senator Tinubu are being distributed to 2,400 less-privileged families.

She said the beneficiaries were drawn from the 23 local government areas of the state and from different groups, including PWDs, orphanages, widows, people infected with HIV, NYSC Corps members and the two religious bodies- the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) among others.

In her own capacity, Wife of Governor Uba Sani, Hajia Hafsat gave cash donations to the respective beneficiary groups to complement the food item donated by the First Lady.

Chairman of the PWDs in Kaduna, Suleiman Abdullahi, said, “the palliative distribution is a sign that the APC government of President Tinubu and Governor Uba Sani at Kaduna State level, care for the people, especially People With Disabilities (PWDs). In the past, when the elections were over, the people in government often forgot the less privileged like us.”
