Nigerian Football Ambassador and Former Super Eagles Striker Daniel Amokachi has brought huge relieve to thousands of Kaduna residents by distributing food items and other provisions to ward off the effect of the covid-19 lockdown.

The distribution which was done under the aegis of the Amokachi Foundation saw more than 1,100 families given packs of food items and provisions.

According to the Former Everton of England marksman, “This is my little contribution to help the needy in this covid-19 period. I normally do this 4-6 times in a year to assist people who are in need. I consider it a special honour and privilege by God to assist the less privileged in our society. I will continue to do this as long as God grants me the grace.”

The Bull as Amokachi is fondly called by fans said the gesture was extended to both male and female, but mostly to women since mothers are responsible for the catering of the family.
The distribution was done round the Kaduna metropolis in an orderly manner.

The beneficiaries thanked Amokachi for the gesture, declaring it as timely and special.
