AFRI-CIRD Supports Kano State Government Over Condemnation of Ramadan Feeding Food Quality

AFRI-CIRD Applauds Gov. Abba Kabir Yusuf of Kano State For Decrying the Poor Quality of Food by Vendors for the State’s Ramadan Feeding Program. Calls for more CSOs – Government Collaborative efforts to strengthen oversight, transparency, and accountability of the entire process.

The African Centre for Innovative Research and Development (AFRI-CIRD) strongly supports the Kano State Government in condemning the quality of food provided during the state government’s On-going Ramadan feeding initiative. This was established by Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf when he visited the Gidan Maza feeding Centre, Kano Municipal Local Government Area. The Governor expressed deep concern over the quality of food provided, which he described as ‘nonsense’ during such a critical process. Urgent action is required to uphold transparency and accountability.

The Governor’s disappointment highlights a betrayal of trust and disregard for the sanctity of Ramadan. AFRI-CIRD strongly condemns this act and demands swift and decisive measures to hold responsible parties accountable under the law.  AFRI-CIRD urges the government of Kano State to take immediate action to address this issue and ensure that those responsible face appropriate consequences.

AFRI-CIRD is urging the government to involve organized civil society organizations (CSOs) in the entire feeding centres set up across the state. By including CSOs, transparency, oversight, and accountability can be enhanced, thus restoring faith in the integrity of the initiative. The organization believes that involving CSOs to track, monitor, and report the implementation of the Ramadan feeding program will add more credibility to the process. This will not only ensure that quality food is provided but also ensure that the program reaches its intended beneficiaries and delivers much-needed support during this holy month.

As an organization dedicated to promoting good governance and accountability, AFRI-CIRD emphasizes the importance of upholding ethical standards in all public welfare initiatives. Let us work together to condemn corruption and strive towards creating a more just and transparent society for all citizens.
