Wife of the governor of Nasarawa State, Hajiya Faridat Abdullahi Sule, on Tuesday distributed palliatives to about 600 less privileged women in the state to cushion the effect of the sit-at-home order of the state government.
Faridat, Governor Abdullahi Sule’s second wife, made distribution of the palliatives through her pet project, FAS Hope Alive Foundation, which items included bags of rice, cartons of indommie noodles and gallons of vegetable oil, at the Emir of Lafia palace, in Lafia the state capital.
Addressing representatives of the beneficiaries at the Emir’s Palace, the governor’s wife appealed to the women to support the government to ensure that COVID-19 is contained from spreading in the state and beyond.
While calling on the residents of the state to restore confidence in government and governance, the governor’s wife thanked the women for believing in her husband’s administration.
She said, “We will ensure that the distribution of the palliative items are done transparently to all the vulnerable women which FAS Hope Alive Foundation is targeted at.
“I wish to assure all that the poor will receive this palliative at home in compliance with the sit-at-home order of the government.”
Receiving the items on behalf of the women, wife of the Emir of Lafia, Hajiya Maimuna Sidi Bage, appreciated the governor’s wife for the palliative, assuring that the items would be delivered to the deserved people in the state.
