Kano State Governor, Abba Yusuf, has denied media reports that his administration allocated N6bn for the Ramadan Feeding Programme.

The governor made his position known in a statement on his X handle on Sunday.

He wrote, “Over the past few days, I’ve observed heightened media speculations about our government purportedly budgeting the sum of N6bn for the Ramadan Feeding Programme.

“I wish to categorically state that the actual amount for the programme is the sum of N1.97bn for the whole month.

“I also counsel the media to ensure that they get their figures regarding our projects from the proper sources without giving credence to speculative figures.”

The governor, on Friday, voiced his dismay regarding the current state of the feeding programme in the Kano metropolis.

He expressed his disappointment during an unscheduled inspection of a feeding centre n Gidan Maza, Municipal Local Government Area.

Yusuf criticised the programme handlers for what he perceived as their failure to adequately serve the intended beneficiaries.
