News Ex-President Yar’Adua’s family supports FCTA coronavirus fight

The family of late former President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua has donated food and personal protective gears to the Federal Capi­tal Territory Administra­tion (FCTA) to support its palliative drive in the battle against COVID-19 pandem­ic in the nation’s capital.

Representative of the fami­ly, under the auspices of Wom­en and Youth Empowerment Foundation, Malam Shehu Umaru Yar’Adua, while pre­senting the items, commend­ed the doggedness of all the health workers, stressing that their dedication to service in these challenging times should serve as an example to other professional bodies.

Yar’Adua also lauded the efforts of the Federal Govern­ment, the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, FCT Min­isterial Expert Advisory Com­mittee on COVID-19, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for their diligence in service.

According to him, “My family, NGO (Women and Youth Empowerment Foun­dation) and I extend our deep­est respect and gratitude to the government of Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Presi­dential Task Force on Control of COVID-19, FCT Ministerial Expert Advisory Committee on COVID-19, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), and to all those working in the healthcare profession for their selfless commitment and diligence as they under­take vitally important roles in our country’s fight against the ongoing pandemic.

“In difficult times, we of­ten discover the best in our­selves, the dedication to ser­vice of doctors, nurses, lab technicians and other health workers, in these challenging times, is an example to us all,” the Yar’Aduas stated.

Receiving the items on behalf of the Administra­tion, FCT Minister of State, Dr. Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, commended the former president’s family for the gesture, stressing that the move would be exemplary to other notable families in the country.

She stated: “We are happy to receive our former first family eminently represent­ed by three eminent sons. This donation will no doubt go a long way to cushion the effect of COVID-19 on the res­idents of the territory and by extension entire Nigerians.

“To me it is special be­cause it is exemplary. This is a way to tell others that you can move out of your comfort zone to touch lives. In touch­ing lives, you will not know that the little gesture might go a long way also to assist other people. This is telling us that they do care in the per­formance of their corporate social responsibility.”
