Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has donated various items, including food stuff and clothing, to the less privileged in the South West zone of the country.
A statement by the Coordinator of the Buhari Osinbajo Support Organisation, Femi Olunfunmilade, on Thursday, said the gesture was meant to ensure that the less privileged in the society also enjoy Christmas and New Year celebrations.
Mr. Osinbajo hails from Ikenne in Ogun State.
The statement said beneficiaries of the vice president’s gesture include SOS Village in Owu Ikija; Eruobodo Motherless Home, Ijebu Ode; orphanage in Bashorun area of Ibadan managed by the Federation of Muslim Women Association of Nigeria and the Lepers’ Colony in Akure.
Others are Abiye Motherless Babies Home, Osogbo; Jamaa Taawuun Motherless Babies Home, Iwo and Widows of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Ijebu Ode.
“The Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has opened his hands of generosity to motherless babies’ homes and lepers’ colony in an effort to ensure the joy of Christmas and happiness of the New Year are extended to the needy in our midst,” the statement said.
Mr. Olufunmilade, who coordinated the visits to the homes, said items such as rice and other foodstuff were given to the beneficiaries.
He said apart from giving them the items, the beneficiaries were told that both President Muhammadu Buhari and Mr. Osinbajo loved and cared for them.
Mr. Olufunmilade said those charity homes not reached presently should not feel unloved as they would be remembered in future outings.
He further requested Nigerians to pray fervently for the Buhari administration to succeed in all areas of its interventions, while enjoining each citizen to work for qualitative change in their respective fields.
“This is the minimum that should be done to support the administration, which offers Nigeria a rare opportunity for breakthrough,” he said.
