Jonathan’s ex-aide empowers the underprivileged
Aformer special adviser on Agriculture to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Senator Baraka Sani, has organised a fundraiser to support the underpriviledged in society.
On the occasion, millions of naira was raised, which she promised to channel to the underprivileged.
Sanni said, “The event is part of my contribution as a social service provider, to alleviate the sufferings of the downtrodden in society. The wise among the beneficiaries will use the funds to establish small-scale businesses to economically empower themselves so as to be self-reliant. The assistance is ostensibly to help to reintegrate them into society.’’
Sani, who is a former Kano State commissioner for agriculture in Senator rabiu Kwankwaso’s administration, said the money would enable the beneficiaries to establish businesses and stop depending on government for survival.’’
According to the former lawmaker, the event, which was organised by Worldwide Initiative for Community Development and Global healthcare, which she heads, is the third in the series. he said the initiative was aimed at bailing out the underprivileged from the shackles of poverty and transform them to self-sufficiency.
