Pensioner donates monthly stipend to Buhari’s anti-graft war



A pensioner, Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius, has donated her entire monthly pension of N10,000 to support the Buhari administration’s anti-corruption war.

Mrs. Julius, who retired as a cleaner from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, also promised to contribute N1,000 every month out of her pension towards the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons (IDP).

Though a pensioner, she said that she was making the donation because she was convinced that President Buhari is a tested man of integrity who can be trusted to restore the lost glory of Nigeria and drastically curb corruption in the country.

According to a statement signed by Abiodun Oladunjoye on behalf of the Special Adviser to the President Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the pensioner also commended the President’s efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitate internally displaced persons.

Receiving the donation on behalf of President Buhari, Mr. Adesina thanked Mrs. Julius for her faith in the Buhari administration.

“We have a pact with Nigerians to change things for the better and we are on the right track. President Buhari and his team are working tirelessly to revamp the economy, combat terrorism and curb corruption,” Adesina said.
