Mai Mala Buni, governor of Yobe State, said the ongoing distribution of palliatives in the state is not just for APC members but for all inhabitants in the state.
Damagum is the capital of the Fune local government area of the state, and Buni made this claim when kicking off the distribution of food to 3,000 low-income homes there.
The governor stated that the state committee is made up of the chairmen of the opposition parties, the Nigerian Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress, and the Nigeria Union of Teachers to ensure fairness and equality.
Others include Civil Society Groups, advocates of individuals with disabilities, and the Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE).
He also said that the distribution of the palliatives was intended to ease the suffering brought on by the elimination of the fuel subsidy.
Rather than harm Nigeria, “President Bola Tinubu removed fuel subsidies to put the country in a better position for sustainable economic growth,” he explained.
In addition, Governor Buni emphasized that the distribution committee had safeguards in place to prevent redistribution for resale.
It has been determined that a total of 400,000 people in seventeen different local government units of the state will benefit from the initiative.
