Despite the significant budget allocations, concerns remain about the potential for corruption and mismanagement. Clerics like Malam Ahmad Abdullahi in Bauchi emphasize the importance of accountability and urge both officials and contractors to act with integrity.

Sheik Sharafudeen Abdulsalam Aliagan, Chief Imam of Nasirul-Lahi-Li-Fatih Mosque, commended the initiative but stressed the need for proper management and distribution of resources. He emphasized that the sanctity of Ramadan should guide those entrusted with managing the funds.

While these feeding programs aim to alleviate hunger and support vulnerable communities during Ramadan, it is essential for authorities to ensure transparency and accountability in their implementation to maintain public trust and effectively address the needs of the people.
