The Zurmi Emirate Council in Zamfara State has distributed over N8.9 million to the needy as Zakkat to the people of the area.

Making the distribution on behalf of the state governor, in Zurmi on Sunday, the deputy governor, Alhaji Ibrahim Wakkala, reminded people of the state that Zakkat is mandatory on every Muslim, who had the resources.

He, therefore, urged all those who were supposed to make the annual offering from their wealth, such as money, animals and grains, to continue to do so, in order to improve the well-being of the poor.

Speaking at the event which took place at his palace, the Emir of Zurmi, Alhaji Abubakar Atiku, said a total of 378 persons would get N20,000 each.

The emir, who is the chairman of the Zakkat Collection Committee of the emirate, also disclosed that 570 bags of assorted grains were collected from farmers which would be shared to the needy, especially orphans, widows and the less-privileged in the emirate.

The Chairman, Zurmi Local Government Council, Auwal Bawa, expressed satisfaction with the activities of the committee in collecting Zakkat and urged Muslims in the area to continue to bring their Zakkat to the committee. (NAN)
