Why Aisha Buhari went to that Catholic church

Following the ‘Other room’ saga, Hajiya Aisha Buhari sort of retreated to the background, leading her activities in quietness.

One of her many schedules includes visiting and donating relief materials to indigents in the society.

Aisha Buhari had pledged to help both Christians and Muslims alike in her large-heartedness.

She has donated foodstuffs to Paraxis Catholic School for the feeding of 300 internally displaced children on scholarship in the school.

The proprietor of the school, Mr. Ben Onwundinjo, made this known in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.

It said the first lady had pledged to partner with the school to ensure that the 300 children were given the best educationally.

Aisha Buhari had described the scholarship scheme initiated by the school as a kind gesture.

She called for support from stakeholders to sustain and emulate the initiative.

In his remark, Owundijo commended the first lady for the gesture.

He assured the President’s wife that the items would be used for the benefit of the children.

He said the school had been renamed to ‘Aisha Buhari Special School for IDPs and vulnerable children.’

He said another pet project in this regard would be unveiled in the first quarter of 2017.

The proprietor said the handing over of the scholarship scheme to the first lady would achieve the greater result of ensuring that no IDP child was out of school in Abuja.
