Mrs Makinde Distributes Palliatives to Muslim Women
Wife of the Oyo State Governor, Mrs Tamunomini Makinde has distributed palliatives to Muslim women in Oyo State.
Presenting the palliatives, Mrs Makinde said the gesture was borne out of the need to felicitate with Muslims during the Ramadan.
Represented by the Oyo State Commissioner for Women Affairs, Alhaja Faosat Sanni, Mrs Makinde said women were the most affected and vulnerable in the Ramadan and covid-19 pandemic, hence the need for the packages.
In a remark, President, Federation of Muslim Women’s Association in Nigeria, Bushrah Olosho, said the gesture was laudable, urging other well-meaning Nigerians to emulate the goodwill by giving to the society.
Two of the beneficiaries, Iyabode Idowu and Bosede Akanbi commended the wife of the governor and called other philanthropists to follow suit.
Items distributed were rice, garri, pasta and vegetable oil.
