The Nigeria News Agency reports that the distribution of food items to 1,000 households in the state was flagged off on Wednesday in Yola.
Fintiri, who was represented by Dr Hasiruna Amos, said that the intervention was to assist the less privileged in the society.
“The intervention is targeting 1,000 households across the 21 Local Government Areas of the state,” the governor’s wife said.
She said that the spirit behind the gesture was to complement government’s efforts in reducing the hardship faced by the goverment’s lockdown directive to curb the spread of the virus.
A beneficiary, Madam Aisha Haruna from Luggere ward in Yola North LGA, thanked the wife of the governor for the intervention.
Haruna said that the food items would go a long way in cushioning the effect of the lockdown.
NAN reports that the items distributed include rice, noddles and cooking oil.
