Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, on Saturday donated relief materials to 500 internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Maiduguri to enable them observe the ongoing Ramadan Fast with ease.
The distribution was carried out on her behalf by Nana Shettima, wife of Borno state governor and chairperson of the committee on distribution of relief materials.
Buhari said that the gesture was to ease the pains of IDPs taking refuge in host communities.
“It is very heartwarming that the committee is reaching out to victims affected by the Boko Haram insurgency across the state,” Shettima said.
“We have also assisted victims of the insurgency in various hospitals and healthcare centres across the state, to ease their hardship,.”
She urged wealthy individuals to assist the less-privileged in the society.
