The Zamfara APC gubernatorial candidate in 2019 general elections, Mukhtar Shehu Idris, has donated cash worth N25 million as additional Sallah welfare to the party supporters in the state on Monday.
The donation was handed down to the leadership of the State APC caretaker Committee led by Lawal M. Liman Kaura.
In an interview with the newsmen at the party headquarters in Gusau on Monday Liman said, the cash donation would be shared to the state, local government, ward executives, elders of the party as well as other relevant stakeholders and members of the APC.
“We received N25 million donated to the party as Sallah gift to members in the state from Mukhtar Shehu-Idris.
He thanked the politician for the donation, describing it as timely and a welcome development.
The party chairman also used the opportunity to commend Athens effort of the former Governor and APC leader in the state, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari and other party stakeholders for providing food items and clothes to party supporters and the needy in the state.
“We want to again express our appreciation to former Governor Abdulazeez Yari for organising Ramadan breakfast to party members in the state,” he added.
Liman said the gesture would no doubt boost the strength of the party in the state and raised the morale of its supporters.
He urged Muslims to use the Sallah festive period and pray for peace and stability in the state and country in general.
