Hajiya Aishatu Buhari, wife of the All Progressives Congress Presidential candidate, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari(retd.), on Wednesday donated drugs worth N135m to the Internally Displaced Persons camps in Adamawa State.
The wife of the presidential hopeful, who was in accompany with former Deputy Governor of Plateau State, Pauline Tallen; wife of the governor of Rivers State, Mrs Judith Ameachi; wife of Nasarawa State governor and others, stormed Yola and visited two IDPs camps in Demare and Saint Theresa.
While presenting the donations at the IDPs camps, Hajiya Aishatu expressed regrets that thousands of Nigerians were displaced by Boko Haram insurgents, insisting that this was due to lack of good leadership in the country.
She said, “It is unfortunate that Nigerians have been turned to refugees in their country, Nigerians are in dire need of change.
“While we commiserate with you over the most unfortunate incident that befall you, which have also brought you here, I want to also stress the need for Nigerians to consider a candidate with integrity, devoid of sentiment.
“It is our fervent prayer that the problem will be over for peace and normalcy to return to the land. Let us join hands to rebuild Nigeria that has been put in disarray by a weak leadership.”
In another development, more than 800 children affected by Boko Haram insurgency in the northern parts of Adamawa have been placed under psycho-socio therapy by the state Universal Basic Education.
The Executive Chairman of ADSUBEB, Bello Furo, made this disclosure on Wednesday while speaking with journalists in Yola.
Furo stated that in order to rehabilitate the children traumatised by the insurgents, the agency engaged the service of psycho-socio consultants.
Over 20,000 children were rendered sent out of schools in the northern parts of the country by the Boko Haram insurgents.
Fura said, “It has started yielding positive result, though it will take time for them to get fully rehabilitated.
“Unfortunately, most of these children you meet today, some of their parents were slaughtered before their very eyes. They do not have anybody to cater for them, they have lost their parents as a result of the insurgency.
“These young children have been forced to leave their places, to flee their homes and become IDPs.”
