Simba Group in partnership with the Director-General of the National Directorate of Employment, Dr. Nasiru Muhammad Ladan, and His Royal Highness, Sama’ila Mohammadu Mera, the Emir of Argungu, yesterday, distributed bags of rice and millet to hundreds of villagers in and around Argungu in Kebbi State.

The food items were generously donated by the Simba Group, who are currently distributing food as well as safety and hygiene products to motorcycle and keke riders across the country, in light of the ongoing pandemic.

With lockdown restrictions in place across many parts of the country, daily-wage earners have been particularly affected.
