Reports say that several bags of federal government’s palliative materials donated to Kano state government have been destroyed by rainfall.
It was gathered that the palliative materials were kept uncovered in an open space at KASCO office at farm centre in Kano metropolis.
“The donated palliative materials by Federal Government to Kano state government include bags of rice, maize and Millette among others food items, large number of them were destroyed in our office premises” an official of KASCO told PRIME TIME NEWS.
Recall that the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk had visited Kano two weeks ago and handed over to Governor Ganduje 110 trucks of food items to the state with the aim for the items to be distributed to less privileges due to government lockdown order over COVID-19 and cushion the effect.
However, the donated relief materials valued at millions of Naira have not still been evacuated from the KASCO open space to avoid further damages of the Palliatives.
