Atiku Wants Well-Wishers At His 70 Birthday To Donate To IDPs


Former Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), Atiku Abubakar has called on his friends, well-wishers and associates to deploy resources which they had earmarked for the celebration his 70th birthday through newspaper adverts to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and other charitable courses.
A statement from his media office quoted Atiku as saying that he wanted his friends and associates to celebrate him in the service of humanity instead of devoting money to adulatory and self-glorifying advert messages.
Atiku, who is the Turakin Adamawa, said that God has been wonderfully kind to him for sustaining his life and keeping him in good health to witness yet another birthday event.
According to him, giving back to humanity has been his passion and that his friends and associates can honour him better if they spend their resources on charitable causes to celebrate his special day.
“My special Day, and indeed the season is one of reflection, of thanksgiving and prayers; of inestimable gratitude to God for attaining this milestone.”
Atiku said touching the lives of others is the best expression of gratitude to God for His boundless favours and blessings.
“I will forever cherish your prayers for more years in good health to enable me undertake whatever assignment God and humanity have set for me.” [myad]
