Woman donates pension to aid campaign against graft
Impressed by the prosecution of the war against corruption by the Muhammadu Buhari administration, a pensioner, Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius, has reportedly donated her entire monthly pension of Ten Thousand Naira (N10, 000) to support the administration’s war against corruption.
Mrs. Julius, who retired as a cleaner from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, (LUTH) also promised to contribute N1,000 every month out of her pension towards the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons, (IDPs).
The pensioner, according to a Presidency statement in Abuja, made the commitments at the State House.
The statement quoted her as saying that she was making the donation because she was convinced that President Muhammadu Buhari is a tested man of integrity who can be trusted to restore the lost glory of Nigeria and drastically curb corruption in the country.
“The pensioner also commended the President’s efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitate internally displaced persons.”
Receiving the donation on behalf of President Buhari, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina thanked Mrs. Julius for her faith in the Buhari administration.
He said, “We have a pact with Nigerians to change things for the better and we are on the right track. President Buhari and his team are working tirelessly to revamp the economy, combat terrorism and curb corruption.”
