Lafia – Aisha Buhari, Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday, donated items worth millions of naira to the physically challenged persons and hundreds of women in Nasarawa State.

Items donate include cartons of macaroni, indomie, bags of rice and cartons of superghetti.

Addressing a large crowd who came to receive the items, Governor Tanko Al-Makura who represented the President’s wife, said that the donation was part of her support to the less privileged and women in the state who could not afford to feed three times in a day.

Al-Makura explained that people should be patient with the administration of President Buhari, adding that APC administration would soon change the fortunes of the country for the better.

The governor used the occasion to speak on the issue of salaries of workers. He said the decision of government to cut down the salary of workers by 50 per cent was to embark on projects that have direct bearing in the lives of less privileged in the society, hence the need for Labour to reconsider the government decision for the sake of development in the state.

Mrs. Esther Monday and Rukkayatu Muhammed, two of the recipients, appreciated the wife of the President for her kind gesture and the passion for the less privileged, adding that it was a right step taken at the right time.

They call on the government at all levels to emulate the wife of the President who care for the less privileged in the society.
