Atiku Promises Children of Fallen Heroes Full Scholarships
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to provide full financial scholarships to five children of our latest fallen heroes ambushed and killed by the dreaded terrorist, Boko Haram.
He hereby, call on his associates, supporters, family and friends to channel his birthday congratulatory adverts and celebration to charity.
He said this because he thinks that many Nigerians has little to celebrate. “the millions who are out of jobs, the civil servants who are owed months of salaries, the indigenes of villages and towns across Nigeria whose daily reality is violent insurgency or spontaneous attacks… These times calls for sober reflection and prayer rather than merriment and jollification.”
The former Vice President consoles with the Nigerian Army over the recent attack that led to loss of lives of officers and men of the 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele, Borno.
“These men and women gave their best and we must reciprocate their sacrificial giving. Therefore, instead of celebrating my birthday this year, which is coming up in few days, I choose to rather celebrate our fallen heroes. As such, I hereby declare an endowment to provide full financial scholarships to five children of our fallen heroes of the 157 Task Force Battalion in Metele up to whatever level there are able and willing to reach at the American University of Nigeria, Yola.
