The Jigawa Government has approved the procurement of 27,000 bags of rice and 10,800 cartons of spaghetti for distribution to residents as a Ramadan gesture.

On Wednesday, the Commissioner for Information, Youth, Sports and Culture, Alhaji Sagir Musa, made this known in a statement in Dutse.

Musa said the procurement was approved by the State Executive Council during its meeting on Monday.

“The State Executive Council on Monday approved a Memorandum presented by the Ministry of Special Duties for the award of a contract for procurement of grains as palliative support for residents in the 1445AH/2024 Ramadan Season.

“The council approved the procurement of 27,000 bags of rice and 10,800 cartons of spaghetti as palliatives for the 1445AH/2024 Ramadan fasting,” Musa said.

He explained that the gesture was aimed at cushioning the hardship people faced as a result of the high costs of food items in the market.
