The Sokoto State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has distributed 4,880 bags of rice to party faithful across the 23 local government areas of the state.
According to the PDP Chairman in the state, Alhaji Ibrahim Milgoma, 20 bags of rice were to go to each ward of 244 members. He said the gesture was to complement members’ need during the holy month of Ramadan.
Milgoma urged members to be committed and loyal to the party as PDP was battle ready to take over the state government in the forthcoming general elections.
“Each ward would be given 20 bags of rice for onward distribution among party members within their domain. It is just a token from the party at the state level”, he said.
Also speaking, the current Nigerian Ambassador to Morroco, Senator Abdallah Wali, enjoined the party leaders at the council level to judiciously disburse the commodity among members in their areas.
