The Minister of State for Defence, Dr Bello Matawalle, has donated 4,860 rams and N390million to the All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders, stakeholders and less-privileged families in Zamfara.

“Other beneficiaries also include party elders, youths, women groups, Islamic scholars, less-privileged persons, orphans and the needy as well as party members throughout the state.

“Other categories of beneficiaries are former Commissioners, Special Advisers, Directors- General, Senior Special Assistants, Special Assistants, Permanent Commissioners and Board members.

“Similarly, a total of 140 persons selected from the 14 local government areas of the state will receive N100,000 each to support them to perform sacrifices during the Eid-el-Kabir,” Idris said.
