According to him, those who contributed include the Deputy Senate President, Sen. Barau Jibrin, two ministers from the state, APC National Chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, and the State APC Chairman, Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas.

Others are defeated APC gubernatorial candidate in the state, Dr. Nasiru Gawuna and his deputy, Murtala Sule-Garo, Chief of Staff to APC National Chairman, Malam Muhammad Garba, and  Abubakar Kabir Bichi.

The APC chairman said the palliatives included 10 bags of 50kg rice per each of the 484 wards and bags of millet.

Abbas challenged the NNPP government to explain the N6 billion it allegedly spent on this year’s Ramadan feeding programme.

Abbas, who described the programme as a sham, asked the state government to show evidence that what they provided was commensurate with what they spent on the programme.

We know that the Federal Government, Bua and Dangote groups have provided palliatives, So, let them show evidence that they have spent the amount on the feeding programme.

Mohammed Garba, Chief of Staff to the National Chairman of APC, explained that Dr Ganduje coordinated the palliatives and that he, alongside the Deputy President of the Senate, Barau Jibrin and others, heavily contributed to purchase the food items.
