Niger State Government says it has identified 47,611 vulnerable households that will benefit from food items donated to the state by the Coalition of Private Sector Against COVID-19 (CACOVID).
Alhaji Abdullahi Muhammad, the state Coordinator for the Coalition of Private Sector Against COVID-19 (CACOVID), made this known on Tuesday during a visit to the state Supply Company Store House in Minna.
Muhammad explained that out of the 88 trucks of the items expected to be delivered to the state, only 73 trucks have so far been received, saying 15 of such trucks are being awaited.
According to him, the items will be distributed as soon as donations were completed; the items will be shared in line with the guidelines given by the CACOVID.
He said that the food items were intact, adding that the process of supply was still ongoing and beneficiaries would be identified and profiled when the supply of the items had been completed.
He also noted that the items would be distributed in a transparent and orderly manner, so that they will get to the actual people they were meant for.
