March 24, (THEWILL) – Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State has denied reports alleging that his administration has allocated N6 billion for this year’s Ramadan Feeding Programme in the state.

Yusuf made this clarification on his official X social media handle on Sunday.

“Over the past few days, I have observed heightened media speculation about our government purportedly budgeting the sum of N6 billion for the Ramadan Feeding Programme.

“I wish to categorically state that the actual amount for the programme is the sum of N1.97 billion for the whole month.

“I also counsel the media to ensure that they get their figures regarding our projects from the proper sources without giving credence to speculative figures,” the Governor said.

Recall that the Kano State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Abdullahi Abbas, challenged the NNPP Government to justify the expenditure of N6 billion spent on this year’s Ramadan feeding programme.

Abbas threw the challenge while flagging off the distribution of palliatives to APC leaders and supporters at Dawakin Kudu, on Saturday.
