Shehu Sani, a Kaduna senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, on Thursday, distributed camels and cows to seven Local Government under his zone.
The camels were a gift to observe the end of the Ramadan fasting period. He said he was giving out 12 camels and eight cows in addition to foodstuffs worth over N15 million that has already been distributed during the month of Ramadan.
He said he was distributing camels “because camels symbolize endurance, resilience and courage and this is what all Nigerians need at this very time of Salah event”.
He expressed hope that the distribution would encourage all elected representatives to do all they can to help the poor at this very time of need when the country is passing through a very difficult moment in its history.
“I am here in fulfillment of that very promise to feed my people and to make sure the Sallah turns out to be a memorable one for them and their families.I promised that, this will continue to be for the period that, I will continue to serve as a senator.
“This is what we need to do to help the poor even though there was a saying that the poor should be taught how to fish and not to give them fish, but the the poverty in Nigeria has reached a humanitarian state where you need to give them fish to be able to fish,”
