Adeniji expressed gratitude for the positive responses from Ambassador Alshamsi and Governor Sani, stating that they have pledged their full support for the humanitarian cause.

We met with His Excellency Salem Saeed Alshamsi Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates alongside the Governor of Kaduna State, Uba Sani and the North Central Woman Leader of the APC, Princess Zara Audu on the occasion of the 52nd United Arab Emirates National Day.

“We are happy to say the Kaduna State Government is ready to assist the programme (school feeding) in every way possible. The governor takes great pride in the programme saying Kaduna was one of the best states designated for such a programme. They pride themselves and want to continue to be the best in line with our school feeding programme, the statement read.
