During the occasion at the Multi Purpose Hall, Government House in Maiduguri on Saturday, Chairperson of the Committee, wife of Borno state Governor, Hajiya Nana Kashim Shettima said, the gesture became necessary in view of concern by Hajiya Aisha Buhari and the President to take care of the less privileged and IDPs, especially women and children who are the vulnerable group in the society.
Hajiya Nana mentioned that the committee had distributed relief items to IDPs mostly pregnant women, lactating mothers, children and those who sustained injuries due to suicide bombings and were hospitalised across the state, Vanguard writes.
She further stated that her committee has visited Gubio, Biu Local Government Areas and other host communities where thousands of IDPs and other victims of insurgents benefitted from the gesture.
“This time, we are giving them bag of rice each, beans blankets, Mosquito nets, Indomie, set of wrapper, soaps etc donated to Her Excellency, wife of Mr. President. She therefore called on well meaning individuals and corporate organisations to donate to IDPs, particularly during this month of Ramadan,” she said.
Chairman of People living with disabilities in the state, Mallam Umar Mohammed thanked the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari and the Borno state governor’s wife for their kind gestures while assuring of their support to the government.
