Covid-19: Distribution of palliatives, relief materials continues in Gombe

The distribution of palliatives and relief materials to the less privileged members of the society continues in Gombe.

Today’s distribution exercise took place simultaneously at the ten wards of Gombe Local Government Area targeting five thousand six hundred and seventy households drawn from the one hundred and eighty nine polling units of the council.

Performing the exercise at Ajiya ward in Gombe metropolis, the Chairman of the Palliative Committee and Emir of Gombe, Dr. Abubakar Shehu Abubakar lll said the package is meant for the poorest of the poor whose means of livelihood has been greatly affected due to the Coronavirus Pandamic.

Dr. Abubakar Shehu Abubakar lll said the Committee will spare no effort to justify the confidence repose in it by Governor Inuwa Yahaya by ensuring that the relief materials get to the intended beneficiaries.

“To those that are privileged to get the relief materials, I enjoin you to share with your neighbours no matter how little and to those that have not gotten yet, be rest assured that the exercise is a continuous process, so be patient”.

The Secretary of the Committee, Barrister Mela Nunghe, who is also the commissioner for Special Duties said the Governor Inuwa Yahaya- led administration places much premium on the welfare of the people, particularly the less privileged and downtrodden in the society.

He said to ensure orderliness while the distribution of the relief materials lasts, beneficiaries had earlier been given coupon and will be presented with their food items upon presenting the slip to the officials.

Same scenario played out at the Kumbiya Kumbiya ward where beneficiaries took turns to collect their relief materials based on their respective polling units.

One of the supervisors and a foremost medical practitioner in the State, Dr. Yarma described the distribution of the relief materials especially at a time when residents of the state are preparing for the Eid Celebrations as timely and strategic.

One of the beneficiaries, who simply identified herself as Ummi described the palliative as a soothing relief and expressed appreciation to the state Government for the gesture.

Items distributed include rice, maize, millet, pasta, sugar etc.
