Daily Trust - - CITY NEWS - By Abubakar Sadiq Isah

The wife of the chair­man of Kwali Area Coun­cil, Mrs. Saratu Joseph Shazhin, yes­ter­day, do­nated food­stuffs to lep­ers at Al­heri Spe­cial Vil­lage at Yan­goji.

The food items she do­nated in­cluded five bags of rice, three car­tons of maggi, two jerry cans of palm oil and two jerry cans of veg­etable oil and five car­tons of spaghetti.

Saratu said that she de­cided to do­nate the food items to the lep­ers to help them cel­e­brate the Eid-elFitri Sal­lah.

She added that the donation was also in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of their sup­port to her hus­band dur­ing the re­cent coun­cils polls.

“I know what I am presenting you peo­ple is not much due to fi­nan­cial chal­lenges, but the present APC-led ad­min­is­tra­tion, un­der my hus­band, will con­tinue to give sup­port, es­pe­cially in the area of wel­fare,” she said.

The chief of lep­ers of Al­heri, Malam Isah Aliyu, while re­ceiv­ing the items, thanked the chair­man’s wife for iden­ti­fy­ing with them de­spite their dis­abil­i­ties.

He said that they de­cided to give their votes to her hus­band dur­ing the last coun­cils polls be­cause of the good things the present chair­man had done to them dur­ing his first ten­ure.

He said: “We lep­ers can vividly re­mem­ber when your hus­band pro­vided us with a grind­ing ma­chine, which is still func­tion­ing up till today, and some other as­sis­tances he ren­dered to us dur­ing his first ten­ure. It was the trust we have in him that made us to vote him again and God will con­tinue to bless him.”
