    Sokoto State Government will expend the sum of N500m for the feeding of its citizens during Ramadan.

    Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, while constituting a 32-person committee on COVID-19 Ramadan feeding programme in the state said, “Unlike last year, there is significant rise in the amount to be spent from N380m last year to N500m this year due to increase in the number of envisaged beneficiaries and the increase in the price of commodities.

    “The feeding programme, with a modified mandate slightly different from its kind executed in the past, will take cognisance of the World Health Organisation guidelines on the prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    “Although the number of feeding centres in the state has been increased from 137 in 2019 to 150 this year, steps have been taken to ensure they are not crowded during breakfast distribution sessions.
