The donation was conveyed to the state Fund Raising Committee on covid-19 through his sibling, Alhaji Karami Isyaka Rabi’u.
It could be recalled that the committee was set up by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of the state as part of measures being taken to prevent and contain the outbreak of covid-19 pandemic in Kano.
The committee has since its inauguration been receiving donations in cash and kind from well meaning individuals and organizations, most of which would be distributed to the most vulnerable groups in the state to cushion the hash effect of the measures being taken to prevent and contain the outbreak of disease.
While urging people and organizations to support the noble cause, the committee reiterated that cash donations could be paid/transferred to this account: Kano State Covid-19 Support, UBA, Account No. 1022751785 while donations in kind are to be taken to warehouses at No. 94 Maganda Road and Kano State Government Printing Press along Emir’s Palace Road, according to a statement issued by the state Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad Garba and made available to The Triumph.
