FCTA distributes 360 ton of assorted food items to vulnerable

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has distributed over 360 ton of assorted food items to vulnerable and indigent groups in the nation’s capital.

The FCT Minister of State, Dr Ramatu Aliyu, inaugurated the distribution of the food items at the FCT Sports Complex, Garki, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Aliyu said that the exercise was part of strategy adopted by the Federal Government to cushion the effect of growing global economic recession, which affected the capacities of average Nigerian to put food on their tables.

According to the minister, the assorted food items distributed include 4,918 50kg bags of maize, 2,800 50kg bags of guinea corn and 2,400 25kg bags of garri.

She said the move underscores the commitment of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration to promote social equity and improve the lot of  Nigerians.
