Aisha Buhari Urges Organized Private Sector To Help IDPs Resettle
The wife of the President Mrs Aisha Buhari has appealed to the organized private sector and well meaning Nigerians to come to the aide of IDP’s in Borno and other states affected to relocate to their homes after spending two to three years in the camps.
Mrs Buhari said, “to a lot of them its like starting life all over again and the little assistance from good natured citizens will go a long way in helping them to settle down and start life afresh”. Speaking further, Her Excellency said she had already spoken to five companies and eight truckloads of food had been made available so far.
The wife of the president was speaking while receiving a delegation of four women who recently climbed the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilamanjaro in aid of raising funds for the IDP’S .
Mrs Buhari noted that the intervention of the private sector was a way of discharging their corporate social responsibility to the society and a path to nation building.
The four women, who include the wife of the governor of Ogun State Mrs Funso Amosun, Remi Abere, Uzo Nwani and Debo Laditan spent ten days in climbing and descending the mountain as a way of raising funds for the IDP’S
The gesture was initiated by one of the climbers, Remi Abere, who said it was her way of giving back to humanity on her 50th birthday and to raise awareness on the plight of the displaced persons .
