As part of the Sallah food distribution across the 36 states of Nigeria, Sheikh Ibrahim Yakub El-Zakzaky has extended his generosity to Christian widows by sharing numerous bags of foodstuff in celebration of the festive season.

The distribution was facilitated through Pastor Dr. Yohanna Buru, the General Overseer of Christ Evangelical and Life Intervention Ministry in Kaduna State.

Sheikh Ibrahim Yakub El-Zakzaky has made it a tradition to extend food assistance to both Muslims and Christians during the Sallah festivities, aiming to promote peace, unity, and strengthen interfaith relations in the country.

According to Pastor Dr. Yohanna Buru, this year’s distribution is especially significant amidst economic hardships and the high cost of living following the removal of fuel subsidies.

He emphasized that this initiative aims to alleviate the suffering caused by the economic challenges faced by many.

Acknowledging the prevalent hunger in the country, Pastor Dr. Yohanna Buru emphasized the importance of these food items in providing relief to both Muslims and Christians during the Sallah celebration.

He highlighted Sheikh Ibrahim Yakub El-Zakzaky’s consistent efforts in providing assistance to the less privileged during various festivities, including Ramadan.

Expressing her gratitude, one of the widows who received a bag of rice shared her plight, revealing that her household had gone without food for two days.

Madam Rahab lamented the lack of government palliative measures, despite hearing about them, and urged authorities to ensure that assistance reaches those in need.

Madam Rahab also called for peace and unity in the country, urging both Muslims and Christians to pray for the success of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Additionally,

she equally appealed to Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State to prioritize the welfare of widows and orphans, assuring him of their prayers for his administration’s success.
