The wife of the Nigerian President, Aisha Buhari has donated food items worth millions of Naira to the less privileged women in Kano State, northern Nigeria.

 “This donation is part of my efforts in feeding the less privileged that are in need of constant attention in the society,” Mrs Buhari said.

Some of the food items distributed includes: 1,000 cartons of Sphagetti, 1,000 cartons of macroni, 300 bags of rice, 1,000 cartons of couscous, 1,000 bags of Semovita, 1,000 bags of wheat flour and 500 bags of sugar.

The wife of the President also paid a courtesy call to the Kano Central Prison, where she donated drugs, worth N6 million to the inmates.

Mrs Buhari used the occasion to thank the good people of Kano for supporting her husband, Muhammadu Buhari to become the President of the country in the 2015 General elections.

“Thank you very much for all the support from the beginning of my husband’s campaign these past 12 years up till today. I am standing before you as the wife of the President of Nigeria. Thank you very much for everything and also I pray that you continue to support the All Progressive Congress (APC) party, the strongest and the most rapid growing new political party in Africa,” she stated.

The wife of the Kano State Governor, Dr Hafsat Ganduje thanked Mrs Buhari for her good gestures especially in distributing assorted food items to the less privileged women.

”We are grateful, I have already held a meeting with them and we have emphasised to them no matter how small it is, all the items received must be distributed appropriately and we have our supervising body that will make sure that the distribution is done accordingly,” Mrs Ganduje explained.

APC women leaders received the food items for onward distribution to the beneficiaries, spread across three zones in the State.
