COVID-19: AMAC begins distribution of palliatives to residents
Abuja Municipal Area Council, on Wednesday, began the distribution of relief materials to vulnerable residents to cushion the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
AMAC Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu Candido, who presentated the items to beneficiaries at Apo Town Hall, pledged the area council's commitment to compliment the effort of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA.
While commending the FCTA for it's response to the pandemic, Candido said "1200 bags of 25kg of rice and 50kg of beans would be shared to rural communities, adding that the distribution has been clearly spelt out by the committee handling it.
The chairman appealed to the committee to ensure that the food items reach the vulnerable in the communities as they are the persons for whom the intervention was intended.
Receiving the food items, AMAC APC Chairman, Hon. Abas Baba, appreciated the AMAC chairman for the palliatives, while assuring that the items would be delivered to the underserved people in the council.
Baba said "I want to simply appreciate the effort of AMAC chairman this is much because the distribution will reach over 3000 vulnerable persons directly."
A beneficiary of the parliatives, Salisu Jibril from Garki, expressed gratitude to the AMAC Chairman for the gesture, as he never expected it.
