The First Lady of Nigeria, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, showed love to the less privileged, destitute and the poor of the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina Lagos as she reached out to them with hampers filled with different items ranging from Beverages, Cereals e.t.c. to mention a few.
In his address, Dr. Wole Aboderin, who is the Special Adviser on NGOs to the President, Office of the Wife of the President stated that this is a usual gesture from the office of the First Lady during the Yuletide every year.
Aboderin added that the purpose of this year’s edition of the programme was to reach out to the less privileged in the society by the office of the wife of President, especially during the festive season.
“My office is the one saddled with Non Governmental activities. So, on behalf of Aisha Buhari Foundation we want to bring smiles to the faces of the elderly, less privileged, and physically challenged persons in the society. “The First Lady believes in showing love to the less privileged, who couldn’t afford things like this by making them share in the joy of the season,” he said.
One of the beneficiaries of the gesture, Mrs. Cornelia Olufunmilola Ademokun, who attends the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina could not hide her feelings and she expressed happiness with what the First Lady had done.
