The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has reacted to news making the rounds over distributing a branded bag of rice known as Jagaban Rice.
In a statement to clear the air over Jagaban Rice’s speculations, his Media Team noted that its attention had been drawn to viral images of rice bags depicting Asiwaju’s face across parts of the Northern region.
According to the Media Team, Asiwaju Tinubu is not responsible for this initiative. Meanwhile, the Team said the former Lagos State Governor commend the various volunteer groups’ efforts for the benign act of charity and love for one another, particularly in the Holy month of Ramadan.
EveryEvery.ng cited branded rice bags distributed to Kano residents. An Instagram username @mansurah_isah of Today’s Life Foundation uploaded pictures of the event with a caption appreciating Tinubu’s foundation for the food items amid claims that Tinubu is nursing presidential ambition ahead of the 2023 elections.
You will recall that Tinubu recently donated the sum of 50 million naira to victims of a recent fire outbreak at Katsina Central Market in Katsina State. The gesture generated divergent views.
