See What Made Governor El-Rufai Cry
Sadiq Abubakar's eyes were gorged out by suspected ritual killers in Zaria in 2015.
Abubakar, who was then a four-year-old, attended Ango Abdullahi International School, Zaria, at the time of the attack.
All hope seems to be lost but a Nigeria telecommunications firm, Airtel Nigeria, rekindled Abubakar’s hope under its ‘Employee Volunteer Scheme’ through which he was presented with a cheque of N400,000 for his school fees, a braille machine, typewriter, laptop and an abacus.
It was while the Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of Airtel Nigeria, Mr. Segun Ogunsanya, was announcing the package that the governor wept.
Ogunsanya made the announcement during the inauguration of the Yahaya Hamza LGEA Primary School in Ungwan Liman, Zaria.
He noted that with the donation, Abubakar would be empowered to learn to read and write and “enjoy all opportunities a good education provides.”
The state governor Nasir El-Rufai called on other corporate organisations to emulate Airtel Nigeria in order to boost education standards in the state.READ OTHER INTERESTING STORIES FOR FREE. DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
