Women Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Kaduna State, Hajiya Maryam Suleiman has slaughtered three cattle for 300 less privileged women in the state.
Maryam, fondly called Mairusau by her admirers, said slaughtering the cattle and sharing the whole meat to the poor who could not afford to buy meat for the Christmas celebration, is a way of putting smiles on faces of the needy.
Other items distributed were wrappers for women, cash and various food items which she noted, would go a long way in giving the poor a sense of belonging during the Christmas celebration marked by Christian faithful with sacrificing animals, preparing good dishes and dressing in new clothes.
Hajiya Suleiman while assuring less privileged women and widows of her continuous support, paid glowing tributes to Malam Uba Sani, describing the Kaduna State Governor as a leader with the interest of people at heart.
”I am inspired to extend the hand of generosity to the poor by Governor Uba Sani who always preaches the act of remembering the less privileged in the society so they too would be happy.
” We all know how times are hard and prices of essentials have kept skyrocketing which would make it difficult for most people to happily celebrate this year’s Christmas with pageantry.
” It is in this spirit of trying to put smiles on faces of the needy I have decided once more to remember the less privileged people around me, particularly widows who have lost their breadwinners so they too would be happy in this festive season.
” I will use this opportunity to call on the rich and financially privileged members of the society to be generous to the poor people around them so the World would be a happy place to live in, ” she preached.
Deborah James who’s one of the beneficiaries appreciate the kind gesture given to them at this difficult period by the women leader as it will go a long way in putting smile on their families during this festival period.
” As am talking to you right now we don’t have anything to celebrating this Christmas, but with this rice, meat and wrapper I got from our amiable woman leader me and my entire family will join others to celebrate Christmas ” she stated.
Also appreciate the women leader, Rufkatu Andrew said ” I am not a politician but I got a text message to be here today to collect food items, you can see for yourself I got rice, meat, soup items and wrapper. What else will i say than to pray for her, may God Almighty continue to bless her for us”.
