Nigerian Government food items delivered to Kano State government as palliatives are left rotten at open space and are being beaten by rain and sun.

The Federal government two weeks ago delivered 110 trucks of food items to the state meant to be distributed to vulnerable and less privileged whose sources of survival are being crumbled due to lockdown directive. No thanks to COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development Sadiya Farouq delivered the consignment on Sunday 17th May, 2020.

The palliatives include 5,318 metric tonns of rice; 2,438 metric tonns of maize; 1,380 metric tonns of millet and 900 metric tonns of Sorghum.

Worried to notice, however, the relief items worth millions of naira are still left abandoned at the warehouse of Kano Agricultural Supply Company (KASCO) premises at Farm centre without cover to prevent from any circumstantial damage.

The food items which already opened to any eventualities, are being drained by three consecutive rain fall; several bags already soaked by water.
