Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas has admonished Muslims across the country to use the Ramadan fasting and pray for the end of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country and the world at large.
Hon. Namdas who is representing Ganye, Jada, Toungo and Mayo-Belwa at the House of Representatives, made the call while delivering food items to members of his constituency.
Namdas said the gesture is aimed at ameliorating the hardship people may be going through due to the lockdown impose on the state, especially during the Ramadan fasting period.
The Senior Legislative Aide to the Hon. Namdas, Husseini Mbulo, who represented the lawmaker at the distribution said “it is mandated on every Muslim to help those in need during the fasting period. This years Ramadan came at a time when the world is grappling with the Coronavirus pandemic which has crippled businesses and means of livelihood of citizens. It is only right for well-to-do individuals to support those in need, that is why Hon. Namdas is making this donation.”
Namdas further stressed that “members of the All Progressive Congress played an important role in getting us elected into office. It is only natural that we reciprocate this gesture in this critical time. We hope the food items will be distributed judiciously so that those in need will all benefit.”
The acting chairman of All Progressives Congress, Ganye local government, Augustine Nekaburen who received the items on behalf of the party, described Namdas as a pace setter who has the interest of the party at heart. “Just few weeks ago, he brought food items for the party as palliative, and now he brought another one again because of the Ramadan and we thank him. He is always the first. The other time he was the first person among our party leader that brought food items and this time around he is again the first person to bring food items because of the Ramadan. We are saying a very big thank you to Hon. Namdas,” he said.
Augustine further assured that they will share the items accordingly and ensure everybody benefit from it.
A Representative of the APC in Jada local government, Alhaji Danmaliki Jada described the gesture by Hon. Namdas as timely while thanking him for always putting his constituents first. “We thank him for giving this food items to the people of his constituency so that they can do the fasting comfortably based on the situation we find yourself in this country,” he said.
Recall that Hon. Namdas had some few weeks ago distribute food items to his constituents in the wake of the lockdown of the state which was occasioned by the increasing spread of the Coronavirus pandemic in the country.
