A support group committed to galvanizing Nigerians for the APC Presidential Candidate, Nigeria Unite for Tinubu/Shettima, (NUFTS), has in its continued drive towards attaining people centered development donated generously to the good people of Mabushi in a bid to put a smile on the faces of its people.
The constraint of accessible and portable water came to the attention of the group through eminent ‘sons of the soil’ who identify with the modest efforts of NUFTS across other communities and thus reached out to the Hon. Minister of State FCT , Dr Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu to further draw the attention of the group so as to ameliorate their plight.
The NUFTS support group leadership and members were led to the community by Hon. Tanko Yamawo, and Hon. Isah Baushe, along with some leaders of the support group in the FCT including Hajiya. Aisha Baiyee, Comrade Ango Suleiman, Haj. Nike Abubakar as well as the Gwarinpa Ward stakeholders.
The District Head of Mabushi, Alhaji Aminu Akwuyi who received the delegation and spoke on behalf of the community lamented that the community has been battling with the issue of water scarcity.
This therefore explained why residents of the community trooped to the street to welcome and appreciate the group for what many described as a project that will alleviate their age-long sufferings due to lack of portable water.
He, however, praised the group and appreciated the intervention of NUFTS as well as its commitment and dedication to improving the welfare of communities in the Federal Capital Territory by providing basic and social infrastructure.
He said: “I give kudos to Nigerians Unite for Tinubu/Shettima and most especially to Hajiya Ramatu Tijjani Aliyu, I’m so happy and excited about the huge effort expended on this project. The swiftness and manner in which the group has come to the rescue of our community shows a lot of commitment”
“I pray that Almighty God continues to bless Haj. Ramatu Aliyu Tijjani for this support through NUFTS, and as a community, we will support her endeavours so that we can continue to enjoy the dividends of democracy from APC.”
In her remarks, the leader of the delegation from the FCT chapter of Nigeria Unite for Tinubu/Shettima, Aisha Baiyee, while lauding the Minister for the gesture, thanked the District Head for his kind words and urged the community to stand firmly with APC candidates.
The District Head later took the team on an inspection tour to ascertain the progress made so far on the water project which is now going to be accelerated to completion for the benefit of the whole community.
