Daily Trust - - HOME FRONT - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

Wife of the Pres­i­dent, Ha­jiya Aisha Buhari, has do­nated food items to wid­ows, phys­i­cally chal­lenged per­sons and other less priv­i­leged women in Kogi State to cush­ion the ef­fects of the eco­nomic down­turn in the coun­try.

Aisha Buhari, who was rep­re­sented by Ha­jiya Maryam Ibrahim at the oc­ca­sion, said the ges­ture was made pos­si­ble through the First Lady's pet project, Fu­ture As­sured, whose ob­jec­tive is to give suc­cour to less priv­i­leged women and youth.

She said the present ad­min­is­tra­tion was con­cerned about the well­be­ing of the peo­ple and would con­tinue to ini­ti­ate more pro­grammes that would im­pact pos­i­tively on their lives.

The pres­i­dent's wife used the oc­ca­sion to thank the peo­ple of Kogi for the sup­port they gave Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari and other APC can­di­dates in the last gen­eral elec­tions.

In her re­marks, the wife of Kogi State gover­nor, Mrs Rashida Bello, thanked Aisha Buhari for part­ner­ing with the Kogi Women and Youth Em­pow­er­ment Foun­da­tion (KOWYEF) to reach out to the less priv­i­leged in the state.

She said the change mantra of the present ad­min­is­tra­tion was all about touch­ing the lives of the peo­ple and bring­ing hope to the down trod­den, as­sur­ing that the items would be dis­trib­uted to only the less priv­i­leged.
