He commended individuals and organizations who have been providing food to the needy and other vulnerable persons during the Ramadan fast, complementing government efforts.

“This spirit of giving should be encouraged to go beyond the month of Ramadan.

He explained that his administration places high premium to the welfare of orphans in the state for them to live a normal and dignified life.

“Many orphans are today beneficiaries of government programmes with a special care given to them to pursue education at all levels.

Gov. Buni appealled to the people of Yobe State to take advantage of the Ramadan period to pray for peace and prosperity of the State and Nigeria.
