Zamfara State government says it has earmarked N500 million monthly distribution to 50,000 less privileged and vulnerable persons. This is contained in a statement issued by the State Commissioner for Information, Ibrahim Dosara, on Sunday in Gusau.

“The N500 million is to be shared among 50,000 beneficiaries monthly to assist them in coping with the challenges of the time, with a view to boosting the state’s economy,” the statement said. The government said the relief programmes would reduce the current economic hardships and the security challenges bedevilling the state.

Zamfara state is one of the most economically backward in Nigeria with very high incidents of insecurity in the North-western region.
