Aisha Buhari, the Wife of the President, on Sunday presented about N30 million cash support to parents of the abducted Government Secondary School (GSS) Chibok students in Borno.

Aisha, represented by Hajiya Nana Shettima, the wife of the Borno governor, presented the cash to the parents at a ceremony in Maiduguri.

She explained that the gesture was aimed at supporting the parents towards alleviating their sufferings.

Aisha pointed out that the presentation was in fulfillment of her promise to assist the less privileged and victims of insurgency in the North East.

“Today’s presentation was in fulfillment of the promise I made earlier in the year during my book launch in Abuja. I made a promise that the proceeds will be use to better the lives of women and victims of insurgency in the North East,” she said.

She urged the beneficiaries to invest the money in productive ventures, so it can better their living conditions.

“This money is not a sort of compensation, but a kind of support for those in need. Our immediate prayer is for God to help trace and rescue the abducted girls so that they can be safely re-united with their families,” Buhari said.

She commended the military for their efforts in fighting the Boko Haram terrorists and expressed optimism that the search for the abducted girls would soon yield dividends.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that each of the 215 parent was given a cash of N139,000 during the event.Aisha Buhari N30m to Chibok Parents

Aisha also donated food items to more than 10,000 widows and people living with disabilities in Lafia, Nasarawa State.

Aisha, who was represented at the event by Governor Tanko Al-Makura of the state, said the gesture was to cushion the effects of the current economic hardships in the country.

The governor explained that the donation was meant to alleviate the suffering and make life easy for the less privileged in the state, especially those observing the Ramadan fasting.

He listed the items donated to include rice, noodles, semolina, vegetable oil, tomato paste, sugar and some amount of money, among others.

The governor said the items would be shared to the less privileged in the 13 local government areas of the state.

The governor appreciated Aisha for picking interest in the condition of the less privileged, widows and the physically challenged in the state.

“This donation is made in the spirit of the Ramadan fasting as the president’s wife contributes her quota towards alleviating the suffering of the less privileged. This particular gesture is a display of the special affection of Aisha Buhari for the ordinary people and we are grateful,” he said.

      First lady, you hold a government position and are expected to be transparent like the rest. You stating it’s your personal money implying it’s not government’s money doesn’t exempt you from corruption. And why are you resolving a “government” problem with your own. It sounds very fishy and EFCC get to work if you claim to be fair.

    Lmao but Buhari had to borrow money to buy presidential ticket? Isn’t he worth only N20 million? (Even though his 11 children were schooling in England)
    For every N1 million Saraki didn’t declare, there’s N5 million Buhari didn’t declare. Meanwhile the certificate finding lawyers have withdrawn the case against him. Top military men that are Igbo and Yoruba have been resigned and replaced with Hausa men. Aviation minister never goes to work.. Charging airlines $140,000 because we don’t have transporters from plane to Tarmac, and that’s why they’ve started leaving

    You people wake up and smell the damn coffee

    Are we really making progress in this country?I don’t think so.We are just going round the circle.This regime is just on a vendetta mission.Subjecting people to unnecessary hardship.I don’t think we are patriotic in this country.In-fact we are not united.When a southern rules bomb blast and when a northern rules attacking of the nation’s critical facilities.This administration brought untold hardship on the people with crazy policies.The difference between this administration is almost same.We are yet to find a leader can solve Nigeria’s problem and also to unite the nation.Until then our problem as a nation persist.

    Chibok girls is the biggest scam . I have no idea why they keep forcing it down our throats. It makes mockery of the sensitive subject it addresses. Donations, searches, stories, near misses. When the hell do you find them and get them home once and for all?

    Eeehhhh , so under one year Aisha has become a millionaire, who knows what will become of Buharis family after this tenure. One chance change!! May God deliver this country by himself, amen. This is the most partial administration ever, all this people care about is only the North from Chibok girls donations to passing grazing bill, while majority of the citizens are suffering. Marginalisation of the highest order from job opportunities to everything. It is one Nigeria Indeed. Mtsheeew. Next please!!
