Get Involved-Future-AssuredFirst Lady, Aisha Buhari on Tuesday launched the “Get Involved” component of the Future Assured program designed to provide solutions to problems of malnutrition among children in the country.

The initiative is aimed at attracting active participation of well meaning Nigerians, private sector and non governmental organizations in response to the alarming outbreak of undernourishment at internally Displaced Camps.

According to a UNICEF report 2.5 Million Nigerian children suffer from malnutrition with about 500,000 likely to die from the deficiency within a year.

Aisha Buhari said with collective efforts from the Nigerian Public no child in Nigeria should lack a good nutritional diet.

    Singing – “She must chop our money” and strolling away.

    Its a welcome idea for me. If you’ve been to the IDP, you’ll roll on the floor and never stop giving thanks to God for your life.
    Those people need every care we can give.

      If Aisha’s husband was not such a heartless and useless president we would not have so many millions of displaced children and malnourished children. Instead of asking Nigerians suffering the unprecedented recession to give Aisha their hard earned money, Aisha should return the 70 million naira donations each of our government money that she levied every serving governor to respective state government coffers so the governors can stimulate their economies. I for one will never give a single kobo to Aisha Buhari that cannot publish her accounts and detailed list of donors but it posturing about forming lady bountiful. Apc government and the Buhari’s are a scam. Nigerians have never had it so bad.

    Can somebody pls educate me on how these Charity organisations come up with their estimates.

    Na by Census of the Malnourished? or is it from rational expectation or Empirical evidence!! Or is there one magical wand that keeps tab on it? Cah to take this figures just on face value, is clearly an injustice to Our great Nation.

    But on the flip side, being Nigeria, perhaps there are more than 2.5 million malnourished kids, and this 2.5 is just to save face/image of Nigerians as they clearly frown at anything depicting their country in a negative way.

    That is why i ask, how do these guys come up with the figures. if u ask me, it must have something to do with the yearly budget of unicef. the guys in charge of the budget must be making a killing from their bogus estimates!!!! Go figure!!!!!

    Apart from making financial contributions how do we really get involved on the ground to render selfless service?

    Aisha Buhari’s “Get Involved” initiative is an excellent way to solve the problems of malnutrition among children, women and poor Nigerians. Governments at all levels, private sector, Development Partners MUST work harmoniously with all well meaning Nigerians to solve Hunger, Anger Disease and despair in IDPs and larger Communities.

    We are Involved and All must Get Involved to save lifes, promote Good Living and ensure equitable life for all.

    Kindly soften your mind remove anchor and rancor to save life and move forward.
