... Borno Govt shares N220m to vulnerable women, widows

Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum, has delivered part of the 36,000 50kg bags of assorted grain donated by the Federal Government to Borno State Government to support resettled communities and other vulnerable families.

The distribution took place Monday in a large open field in Pulka town, with 10,000 residents each receiving a 50kg bag of assorted grain.

Zulum expressed gratitude to the federal government for the donation, noting that it came when such a gesture was most needed.

Addressing the beneficiaries, Zulum said, “We are here to launch the distribution of relief materials from the Federal Government of Nigeria under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The total sum of about thirty-six thousand 50kg bags of assorted grains comprising maize grain and millet was given to the Government of Borno State by the Federal Government of Nigeria.”

He added, “Let me express my sincere appreciation on behalf of the government and people of Borno State to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for this great gesture. This is not the only support that we received from him. We have received tremendous support from the President in the last one year.”

Zulum also stated that the federal government has donated rice to Borno, which the state government is receiving.

“In addition to this grain, the federal government is also providing some rice; we have started receiving it, but they are yet to complete the delivery of the rice to the state government,” Zulum said.
