Nigeria: Aisha Buhari Donates Relief Materials to Survivors of Kaduna Killings

Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has donated relief materials worth millions of naira to survivors of the recent killings in Kajuru local government area of Kaduna State.

The president's wife, who commiserated with victims of the crisis that claimed lives of many citizens of Adara natives and Fulani communities, also described the avoidable killings as unfortunate, praying that such does not occur again.

Represented by one of her close associates, Hajia Binta Muazu, the First Lady told both the Fulani and Adara communities affected in the crisis that, God, in His wisdom, has reasons for bringing them together, therefore, they must live together in peace and harmony.

According to her, "Her Excellency, wife of the President, Dr Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, feels your pain. She is touched by the unfortunate incident that happened here in Kajuru. She has asked me to express her condolence to you and bring to you some relief materials.

"We understand what you are going through, you have lost loved ones; property and you have been displaced. We know that, what we have brought is nothing compared to what you have lost, but because Her Excellency feels your pain, she has asked us to bring these relief materials, which include food items and clothing materials.

"She also asked me to tell you that, God, in His wisdom, has reasons for bringing us together in different tribes and religions, therefore, we must learn to live together in peace and harmony.

"She also asked me to assure you that, the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be fished out by the authorities and will be made to face the most severe punishment according to the law of the land".

Also speaking at the event, wife of the Kaduna State governor, Hajia Aisha (Ummi) Garba El-Rufai, expressed appreciation to the president's wife, and admonished the people of Kajuru local government to live in peace.

Receiving the items on behalf of the people of Kajuru, chairman of the local government council, Hon Kafra Caino Boaz, expressed dismay that the image of Kajuru was being soiled by incessant crises.

He told the people of the area that, the recurring crises have denied the local government area meaningful developments and progress.

One of the beneficiaries, Mrs Halima Augustine, thanked the president's wife for the gesture and appealed to the government to help them apprehend killers of their kinsmen.

Items donated included truckloads of 25 kilogram bags of rice and other food items, as well as clothing materials.
