Sadiya Umar Farouk, Minister for Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Relief and Social Development, said she forgave those who accused her of hiding palliative measures against COVID-19 aimed at the poor.
Faruk said this on Monday, answering questions from journalists in Gusau.
“I know that many people have made various false accusations and accusations against me and my ministry about how we distribute federal government palliatives to mitigate the effects of COVID-19.
“I have always said that I carry out my duties to the best of my ability and with loyalty to all parts of the country.
“Now that they have realized their mistakes, I will only pray to God to forgive us all,” he said.
NAN reports that the minister had previously paid tribute to Emir Gusau Alhaji Ibrahim Bello, where the monarch asked the federal government to take another look at the state’s security situation.
“The federal government should support the state in opening more access roads to uncover criminals’ hideouts and make it easier for security officials to fight all terrorists.
“We should also be looking to increase the number of appointments at the federal level because we currently have only one permanent federal secretary.
“I want to assure you that we will continue to support all the programs of the federal government aimed at improving the well-being of people,” said the emir.
