The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has shared foodstuffs and cash to their deceased members’ widows and orphans in Kaduna State to ease their economic hardship.

The State NURTW Chairman, Alhaji Tanimu Aliyu Zaria, at a news briefing, said the gesture was to support them, including aged members, at this time when life has become difficult.

According to him, not all Nigerians benefited from the federal government’s palliatives, particularly their members, hence the need for the association to support orphans and widows among them.

He added that the beneficiaries received N10,000 each and a piece of new textile cloth, while 323 men benefited from the funds to get food to eat.

Alhaji Tanimu Aliyu Zaria urged the NURTW members to always support the leaders of the association with prayers.
