Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Hajiya Sadiya Umar-Farouq, said she has forgiven those who accused her of hiding COVID-19 palliatives meant for the poor.
She stated this while fielding questions from journalists in Gusau on Monday in Gusau.
“I am aware many people have made various spurious allegations and accusations against my person and my ministry over the way we distributed Federal Government palliatives to cushion the effect of COVID-19.
The ministry said it had distributed assorted food items to states for onward distribution to the most vulnerable population but the claim was rebuffed by many saying they did not benefit from the gesture
And of course, Farouq and the ministry she’s spearheading were
called out severally for allegedly siphoning the palliatives.
Now, she is looking golden.
Farouq the hero
Sadiya Umar Faruq, she wasn’t lying when she said she shared palliative worth billions. Some government officials hide it in a private warehouses. It was the rioters that confirmed her innocence. Hajia a gaida ango.. Allah ya saka da alheri! pic.twitter.com/fY3kDXGUab
