The Kano State branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is questioning the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP)-led government about how it used N6 billion for this year’s Ramadan feeding program.

The Chairman of Kano APC, Abdullahi Abbas, raised this issue on Saturday during the distribution of relief items to APC members in Dawakin Kudu.

Abbas criticized the Ramadan feeding program, demanding that the State Government prove that the food being distributed matches the amount of money reportedly spent on the program.

“We know that the Federal Government, BUA, and Dangote groups have provided palliatives, so let them (Kano State Government) show evidence that they have spent the said amount on the feeding programme.

“The grains we are distributing to our supporters were purchased through contribution by ourselves as we don’t have a government in the state,” Abbas said.

It was reported that those who donated include Deputy Senate President Barau Jibrin, two ministers from the state, APC National chairman Abdullahi Ganduje, and Abbas.

Other contributors mentioned by the chairman are Kano APC gubernatorial candidate Dr. Nasiru Gawuna and his running mate Murtala Sule-Garo, Chief of Staff to APC National Chairman Malam Muhammad Garba, and Engr Abubakar Kabir Bichi.

Ganduje’s aide, Garba, stated that the donation was intended to help ease the economic difficulties currently being faced in the country, especially during the ongoing Ramadan Fast.

“We felt it is necessary to support our party supporters and leaders across the 484 wards especially during this Ramadan period since we’re in a privileged position,” he said.

Garba, who was representing Ganduje, stated that the idea of distributing palliatives was coordinated by the APC national chairman.
