Buhari’s Wife To Donate Proceeds Of Her New Books To Chibok Girls, Buni Yadi Boys, IDPs
In an expression of her concern about the abducted Chibok girls, IDPs and other victims of insurgency, the Wife of the President, Mrs Aishat Buhari would be donating proceeds of her new book to their cause, according to sources close to the Chibok & Buni Yadi communities.
It was revealed that the wife of the president who is a notable professional beautician has written a textbook on the discipline which would be released next week, and proceeds would be donated to the Chibok girls and their families, IDPs and other victims of Boko Haram insurgency.
Included also in the expected donation to be made next week are families and relatives of the 59 pupils killed in a boarding school attack by Boko Haram in northeast Yobe State, Nigeria overnight, in February 2014 before the April abduction of the Chibok girls.
The donation of the proceeds of the book will coincide with the second year commemoration of the abduction of the Chibok girls and 26 months after the Buni Yadi attack and is intended to be used for the empowerment of the families and their communities.
Several other activities are being planned for next week as the Chibok families, activitists and groups commemorate two years since the Chibok girls went missing.
While renewed efforts by the Nigerian military have beaten back Boko Haram terrorists, hope for the capture of the Chibok girls remain unfulfilled and next week events are expected to mount pressure on the Nigerian government to redouble efforts to bring back the girls.
President Buhari has met with the families of the Chibok girls and activists at least twice in Aso Rock since he assumed power mid last year.
