Aisha Buhari Gives out Birthday Gifts, Tasks Elites on Humanitarian Gestures
Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari on Friday showered patients of the four district hospitals in Abuja with gift packs.
The humanitarian gesture at the hospitals in Asokoro, Garki, Wuse and Maitama General Hospitals, was in commemoration of her birthday. She turned 46 yesterday.
Represented at the event by the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Dr. Hajo Sani, Mrs. Buhari charged privileged Nigerians to do more to alleviate the sufferings of the less privileged in the society, Vanguard writes.
Stressing that the gifts exemplified the work her pet project, Future Assured, was doing all over Nigeria especially to the less privileged, she reckons that such gestures would spread love and amity in the polity.
“Her Excellency wants to remember the less-privileged on this important day and that is why she is sharing with them. She wants to touch their lives and wants them to feel her on this symbolic day,” Sani said.
The Medical Director, District Hospital, Asokoro, Dr. Abubakar Ahmadu, who led the visiting team round the maternity, neonatal and paediatric wards in the hospital, commended the wife of the President for her humanitarian services and called on other elites to emulate the President’s wife.
Accompanying Mrs. Buhari’s representative on the visit were former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Dame Pauline Tallen and the Coordinator, African First Ladies Peace Mission, Mrs. Beatrice Bassey.
Aisha Buhari has been in the country to take care of her pet project while the President, Muhammadu Buhari recuperates in a London hospital.
