The women’s leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kaduna State, Hajiya Maryam Suleiman, Monday, slaughtered three cows for the needy and less privileged to celebrate Eid-el-Kabir.
Maryam, fondly called Mairusau, said slaughtering the cows and sharing the meat to the poor was a way of putting smiles on their faces.
She also distributed wrappers and food items to them.
Hajiya Suleiman, while assuring less privileged women and widows of her continuous support, paid tributes to Gov Nasiru El-Rufai, whom she described as ‘a leader with the interest of people at heart’.
Quoting her, “I am inspired to extend the hand of generosity to the poor by Governor Nasiru el-Rufai who always preaches the act of remembering the less privileged.
“We all know how times are hard and prices of essentials have kept skyrocketing, making it difficult for most people to happily celebrate this year’s Sallah.
“I will use this opportunity to call on the rich and financially privileged members of society to be generous to the poor people around them so the world would be a happy place to live in.”
