He said this has always been a yearly gesture which underscores the importance the national executive council (NEC) places on livelihood.
He said over 50 1kg rice was distributed to widows shortly before the commencement of Ramadan, adding that as part of the Ramadan programs, daily iftar for an average of 100 people, weekly Friday and Saturday mega iftar for over 500 people at an average of N200, 000 per IFTAR was done.
On the spiritual aspect, he said there is daily live radio program on WAZOBIA FM 95.1 at 10am to 11am, Friday and Saturday Tafsir, Tahajud on Friday and the normal Sunday asalatu which comes with special prayers.
