Abubakar Audu Junior, who was in Lokoja in company of the United States Special Envoy, Mr. Phillip Bonn Africa Edward said it became imperative on the Foundation to consider assistance to the less privileged communities in view of lack of socio economic amenities needed to uplift their wellbeing.
“Education is a right of every child and the Foundation is prepared to contribute its quota to ensuring that the children are nurtured for the future through conducive learning and teaching atmosphere ” He maintained.
According to the Philanthropist the Foundation has plan for other spheres of life that when executed will impact positively on the lives of the rural dwellers, appealing to them to cooperate and participate in the process of developing their communities.
Representatives of the benefiting communities, while commending Prince Shuaibu Abubakar Audu, urged him to step in to his father’s shoe in order to emancipate and salvage the oppressed and the downtrodden.
