A chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Saliu Mustapha, has provided succour to the indigent students in tertiary institutions across Kwara state by giving out food items through the National Association of Kwara State Students (NAKSS).
The President National Association of Kwara State Students (NAKSS), Comrade Muftau Mubarak, while showing his appreciation yesterday, commended Saliu Mustapha for donating bags of rice to indigent students in tertiary institutions.
“The show of appreciation is preceded by the show of love via the foundation to some indigent students of Kwara State through the National Headquarters of the association,” said Muftau.
“The Foundation doles out bags of rice to the association to be distributed among Kwara indigent students across the state-based institutions.
“We on this gesture submit our most sincere gratitude to Mallam Saliu Mustapha and pray for continuous uplifting throughout his endeavours. Amen,” he concluded.
While reacting to the development, Director-General of Saliu Mustapha Foundation, Alhaji Adebayo Ambali, made it known that the donation was made at the instance of the student leaders and in the realisation that there are indigent students across campuses that are in need of the foodstuffs to fulfill their spiritual obligations.
He showed his satisfaction on how the Union handled the sharing of the food items and said it gladdens the hearts of everyone at the Foundation that the leadership of NAKSS found the modest support rendered by Foundation to indigent students during the holy month of Ramadan worthy of appreciation.
He said: “We are particularly happy with the students’ excellent coordination of the distribution of the foodstuffs across select tertiary institutions in the state.
“We commend NAKSS for taking up this role, just as we look forward to further robust relationship between our foundation and the student body,” Adebayo noted.
