Speaking on Thursday, May 2, in Abuja, during the launch of the standard copy of the Khattul Barnawy handwritten Qur’an, the governor said his administration had made achievements in the developmental projects, policies and programmes in all sectors in the state.
Daily Trust reports that Gaidam said 100,000 copies of the standard Holy Qur’an had been produced by the state government for distribution to mosques, ‘Madrasas and Tsangaya schools, Ulamas’ and individuals.
