The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State on Saturday donated 7,740 bags of grains and 2,000 cartons of spaghetti for distribution among its members.

The grains include 5,840 bags of 50kg rice and 1,600 bags of millet, which will be distributed to its supporters across 484 wards in the state.

The state chairman of the party, Abdullahi Abbas, inaugurated the exercise as palliatives to APC leaders and supporters at Dawakin Kudu LGA on Saturday.

” What we are distributing to our supporters was purchased through contributions from ourselves as we don’t have a government,” said Mr Abbas.

According to him, those who contributed include the Deputy Senate President Barau Jibrin, two ministers from the state, APC national chairman Abdullahi Ganduje, and the state APC chairman, Abdullahi Abbas.

Others are defeated APC gubernatorial candidate Nasiru Gawuna and his deputy, Murtala Sule-Garo, the chief of staff to APC national chairman 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.

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

The state APC chairman described the programme as a sham and asked the state government to show evidence that what it provided was commensurate with what it spent on it.

“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,” he added.
