Bello Pledges Support for Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation

…Named Foundation’s Ambassador

Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), has promised that the FCT Administration will support the initiatives of the Sir Ahmadu Bello Memorial Foundation in the FCT.

He made this known during a courtesy visit by representatives of the foundation’s board of trustees and management to the FCT Administration,

Bello recalled how the late Sir. Ahmadu Bello had a significant impact on his life as a child and student as well as the lives of many other Nigerians.
Additionally, the Minister thanked the Foundation for its charitable efforts in the nation’s capital, particularly for its donation to the FCT at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Bello was also decorated as an Ambassador of the Foundation during the visit by the Chairman of its Board of Trustees, Dr. Muazu Babangida Aliyu who led the delegation and commended the good work the Minister is doing in the FCT while also thanking him for his support for the Foundation.

Speaking on the activities of the Foundation, Dr. Aliyu said it was deeply involved in the education sector with the provision of scholarships to indigent students whom he said were doing very well in their academic pursuits.

He also used the opportunity to call on Nigerians with the means to sponsor indigent students through school, to do so.

He equally spoke on the legacies of Sir. Ahmadu Bello whom he described as a detribalized Nigerian. He said “There was no discrimination in terms of religion or tribe. All the stories you hear were of unifying the people”.

“We need to remind our children and ourselves that there are values in the northern region that you must stick with if you want to remain united and develop properly”, he added.

Present at the meeting were the Secretary of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, its Director General and CEO, Engr.
