Coronavirus: NGWF to distribute palliatives to vulnerable groups in the 19 Northern States
In order to cushion the effect of the coronavirus lockdown on the vulnerable groups, Northern Governors’ Wives Forum has completed arrangements to distribute palliatives to indigent and vulnerable groups in the 19 Northern States.
Members of the Forum agreed to reach out to vulnerable groups in each of their various states between Friday the 1st and Saturday the 2nd of May 2020. Over 3,000 beneficiaries will be provided with Food items to ease their hardship during the lockdown.
It is evident that this is not an easy period for all of us Nigerians, especially those amongst us who are in dire need; therefore these palliatives will be targeted at assisting such people to cushion the effect of the economic hardship caused by the pandemic.
As we go through the month of Ramadan, we implore the more able amongst us to help needy Nigerians through this difficult period. We however remain confident that we shall come out stronger as a Nation.
