Zamfara Govt. releases 500 rams, 40 cows for sallah

The Zamfara Government says it has released 500 rams, to be distributed free to the poor, for the forthcoming Eid El Kabir celebrations.

The state’s Commissioner for Religious Affairs, Abdullahi Shinkafi, a professor, announced this on Saturday in Gusau during a preaching session.

The commissioner, represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Sani Maradun, added that the government would distribute 40 cows, also free, to some selected groups for the same purpose.

According to him, the gesture is to enable the poor in the state celebrate the festival with members of their families.

He said both the rams and the cows were meant to go to the target groups, and warned those charged with the responsibility of the distribution to be guided by that.
