Mallam Bello lamented that the plight of the poor and needy are of great concern to the foundation.
“We are moved by the helplessness of the current situation that most of the poor and needy people have to contend with. It is in this light that the foundation deemed it necessary to intervene and bring succour to the less-privileged while putting smiles on the faces of those suffering from deprivation,” he said..
He urged the beneficiaries to make the best use of the Zakat fund and items.
“Please shun the habit of diverting the items by selling them. To do that, it will amount to a betrayal of trust, which Allah and the Zakat payers reposed in you.
“I also implore you to work harder and be focused because there will also be a light at the end of the tunnel for you by the grace of God,” he said.
