Dangote Foundation has distributed 25,000 bags of 10kg rice to the less privileged in Kebbi State.

 

The foundation distributed the food items under the supervision of Director of the foundation from Kano State, Alhaji Sadeeq Ahmad-Aliyu in Birnin Kebbi.

 

While distributing the commodity,
the Coordinator of the foundation in the state, Alhaji Adamu Attahiru, commanded Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Founder of the foundation for his unprecedented philanthropy over the years.

“The distribution of 25,000 bags of rice to Kebbi people would help to feed the vulnerable during Ramadan,” he said.

Attahiru recalled that similar consignment was delivered to Kebbi State in 2019, in addition to the provision of other food items by the foundation.

He appealed to Dangote to actualize his pledge of providing financial assistance to the less- privileged in the state to engage in small- scale entrepreneurship.
Attahiru urged other wealthy Nigerians to emulate Dangote in the gesture by supporting those in need.

The coordinator thanked Dangote for supporting the state with grains to also ease economic hardship in the state.2
