Kano state Governor, Engr. Abba Kabir Yusuf has flagged off the distribution of meat from 700 cows slaughtered for 5,600 vulnerable people in Kano as part of rituals to mark the demonstration of sacrifice and generosity during the Eid El Kabir celebrations.

According to a Statement by the Governor’s spokesperson, Sanusi Bature Dawakin Tofa, Governor Yusuf inaugurated the distribution of meat from 700 cows to 5,600 individuals across the State, courtesy of a charitable organization based in Germany, HASENE, collaborating with the BARIS Foundation as part of their Edil-Kabir Kurban for the year 1445AH.

Launching the symbolic distribution at Bayero University, Kano, Governor Yusuf expressed profound joy at the benevolent act, foreseeing the upliftment of spirits among the countless individuals in need.

He charged the administrators and distributors of this initiative to uphold justice and maintain a devout reverence for Allah, to ensure the fulfillment of their entrusted responsibilities and the realization of the Kurban project’s objectives within the state.
