Each of 1,000 orphans receive N50,000 cash support from Yobe government

Many orphans in Yobe have benefited from the state government’s scholarship awards from primary to tertiary levels within and outside Nigeria, Gov. Mai Mala Buni said in Damaturu on Saturday.

He made the declaration while inaugurating the distribution of a cash support of N50,000 to each of 1,000 orphans in the 17 local government areas of the state.

He said that a significant number of Yobe children had been enrolled in the state’s Tsangaya education system (a traditional Islamic education system), reportedly performing impressively.

The governor commended existing charity efforts of different stakeholders, particularly during Ramadan, and encouraged such acts of generosity all-year-round.

He said the annual programme of giving cash support to orphans was designed to give them a sense of belonging, particularly during festive periods.

Gov. Buni expressed appreciation of religious leaders for promoting the importance of supporting orphans and urged them to continue the message beyond Ramadan.

He called on Yobe residents to use the holy month of Ramadan to pray for peace and prosperity for the state and the nation.

Some of the beneficiaries expressed gratitude to Yobe government for the N50,000 gesture.
