president-muhammadu-buhariWith the war against corruption receiving the full attention of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration, one Nigerian has shown her appreciation in the most unique way by donating her entire monthly pension in support of the campaign.
Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius, a pensioner, donated her monthly pension of N10,000 to the anti-graft war.
Mrs. Julius’ donation was received on the president’s behalf by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Monday at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to a statement he issued, Mr. Adesina said the pensioner, who retired as a cleaner from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, also promised to contribute N1,000 monthly from her pension towards the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs.
The statement quoted Mrs. Julius as explaining that she made the donation based on the conviction that President 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.
She was also said to have commended the Buhari administration’s efforts towards ending the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitating the IDPs.
In his response, Mr. Adesina thanked the pensioner for her faith in the present administration, saying “We have a pact with Nigerians to change things for the better and we are on the right track”.
He added that “President Buhari and his team are working tirelessly to revamp the economy, combat terrorism and curb corruption”.
