“As Easter is ap­proach­ing, we de­cided to cel­e­brate with the needy mem­bers of our host com­mu­nity be­cause they don’t have any where to get help from; so we see it as part of our cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity to cater for the less priv­i­leged in our host com­mu­ni­ties,” he said.

Re­spond­ing, the district head of Ka­ma­zou, Auta B. Makama ap­pre­ci­ated the ges­ture, pray­ing that God re­plen­ish them. Ac­cord­ing to him, 50 wid­ows from the sur­round­ing com­mu­ni­ties ben­e­fited from the ges­ture. “We are very happy be­cause they put smiles on the faces of the wid­ows in the com­mu­nity,” he said.

The ma­jor chal­lenge I face is lack of fer­til­izer, with­out fer­til­izer, the crops will not grow well,” she noted.

She how­ever thanked the com­pany for putting smiles on their faces.
