The director general of the National Directorate of Employment, Dr. Nasiru Muhammad Ladan and Emir de Argungu, Sama & # 39; il Mohammadu Mera, in partnership with the Simba Group, distributed bags of rice and maize to hundreds of residents of Argungu and the surrounding area of Kebbi Estado.
The food items were donated by the Simba Group, which currently distributes food and safety and hygiene products to motorcyclists and keke across the country, in light of the ongoing pandemic.
With blocking restrictions in various parts of the country, daily wage earners were particularly affected. Speaking on the fringe of distribution, representatives of His Royal Highness said it is vital that aid reaches the most vulnerable and that they have been actively involved with the local community to identify where the greatest needs are.
Nasir, Nasiru Ladan, general director of the National Employment Directorate, thanked Grupo Simba for the kind gesture of saying that the supply of food and safety kits demonstrated the company's concern for the poor and its customers.
“We thank Simba TVS for the distribution of food today in Kebbi, as well as the program for distributing facial masks and hand sanitizers to motorcyclists and keke across the country. Millions of people are employed in the motorcycle and tricycle industry and provide a vital point-to-point transport service throughout the country. Praise to Simba TVS for taking care of them and the community in general who depend on daily rates to make a living, ”said Ladan
