Wife of the president, Hajia Aisha Buhari, on Friday, donated food items to underprivileged people in Niger State.
Mrs Buhari, while making the donation in Minna, said the gesture was intended to cushion the effects of the current socio- economic situation in the country.
The president’s wife, who was represented by the Niger State governor’s wife, Dr Amina Abubakar Bello, distributed 1,000 bags of rice, 1,000 gallons of vegetable oil, 1,000 cartons of tomato paste, 1,000 cartons of specially packaged garri and 1,000 cartons of custard.
According to her, “this gesture is to the underprivileged people, those living with disabilities, widows and the vulnerable in the 25 local government areas of the state.”
She urged Nigerians to remain steadfast in their support for the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, especially in the fight against corruption.
“It is true that although some of you might be going through some form of hardship right now, we need to persevere ?a little more, because if we exercise patience with the government, very soon we will all see the dividends of the change that we have been anticipating, because sustainable change is truly a gradual process”, she said.
