As has been the norm for the past 25 years in every holy month of Ramadan, Shaikh Ibraheem Yaqoub Zakzaky, the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria distributed foodstuff to the residents of Gyallesu in a bid to alleviate their economic hardship. In this Raraman distribution kick-off last Tuesday, led by his brother Sayyid Badamasi Yakub Zakzaky.
The food items include maize, corn, sugar and rice which are annually distributed to the needy among the Sheikh’s neighbors in Gyallesu and other places in Zaria at the inception of every month of Ramadan.
But despite the fact that Zakzaky is still in detention since Zaria Massacre years ago, but he has given the nod for the foodstuff to be distributed and a lot of poor residents of the area benefitted from the humanitarian gesture including the victims of the massacre engineered by Burutai under led by Nigerian President Buhari. The arrival of the food was greeted with cheer by the residents which added credence to the fact that they appreciated the gesture.
Visible even in the face of the current economic hardship in the country, especially during this holy month of Ramadan. However, the distribution of the Foodstuff continued the next day.
