Speaking at the occasion in Gusau, the state chairman of the party, Alhaji Lawal Liman said the committees comprised state, zonal and local government areas.
Liman said in each of the 14 local government areas of the state, the party formed 11-man committee to take the responsibility of sharing the Ramadan packages.
He said at the three Senatorial Districts of the state, they formed another 11-man committee per each zone that would be charged with the responsibility of monitoring and sharing exercise.
“At state level, we set up five-man committee headed by the chairman to oversee the general exercise across the state,” he said.
The chairman said the items to be distributed to members of the party and other people of the state comprised of assorted grains, cash and clothing materials provided by the state APC leader, the former governor, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari.
The gesture was also aimed at cushioning the hardship caused by the lockdown as a result of COVID-19.
“As we inaugurate the committees recently, we are expecting to commence distribution of the items before the commencement of the 2020 Ramadan,” he added.
He appealed to the people of the state to use the Ramadan period to pray and seek Allah’s intervention to overcome COVID-19 disease in the state.
