The Wife of the Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Her Excellency Hajia Asia Ahmed El-Rufai came to the office of the Vice Chancellor of Nasarawa State University Keffi, Professor Suleiman Bala Mohammed. She was accompanied on the visit by the Director, Institute of Governance and Development Studies, Professor Andrew Zamani.
Her visit was on the sidelines of a poverty alleviation programme which brought her to Keffi, courtesy of Prof. Andrew Zamani. The programme is geared towards providing alternatives and social security jobs for drug addicts, victims of domestic violence and social molestation. This is part of her project in Kaduna state and in a bid to expand her frontiers, she accepted the call to replicate such in Nasarawa state when she was beaconed upon by the Director, Institute of Governance and Development Studies, Professor Andrew Zamani. About 11 persons in Keffi benefitted from the event.
The Vice Chancellor on his own part commended Her Excellency for the kind gesture and particularly noted that it takes a large heart to go beyond its territory to do good. He commended Professor Andrew Zamani for taking the initiative to invite his good friend help. He finally mentioned that people like Hajia Asia Ahmed El-Rufai and Professor Andrew Zamani are the kind of leaders Nigeria needs, because they have the capacity to break obstacles and create bridges for people who are in need.
