The National President of an Abuja based anti-corruption NGO; Al-Mushahid Initiative for Transparency and Accountability (AITA), Ambassador Aminu Abubakar Majidadi says visiting and identifying with the less-privileged and orphans is one of the cardinal mandates of AITA.
During the NGO’s 2021 end of year orphanage visit to Safe Our Souls (SOS) Children’s Village Gwagwalada, Amb. Majidadi gave reasons why AITA despite the current economic hardship AITA has to accomplish the noble tradition which is part of its mandates to reach out to orphans.
“We in AITA added to our mandate to fight corruption and ensure transparency and accountability in both public and private sectors of our dear country, identifying with the needy and the less-privileged is also our mandate considering the paramount role it plays in giving hope to the hopeless which is also fighting corruption in another way.” Amb. Majidadi pointed.
Majidadi in his speech during the visit applauded the management and staff of SOS Children’s Village Gwagwalada for keeping to standard in the administration of the Orphanage home which is obvious from the clean environment to the well-organized structures and wellbeing of the children.
During the visit, AITA through the National President donated food items that includes; bags of rice, gallons King’s oil, cartons of Noodles, tins of peak milk, milo, biscuits and lots more. Also donated are rappers aimed at clothing the less-privileged.
In his effort to encourage other well doing individuals and organizations to emulate AITA by remembering children that have lost their parents and the less-privileged, Amb. Majidadi said all the religious books urge us to see the needs of orphans as a responsibility for all and sundry.
“In the need to help the helpless, nobody is exempted and that should be taken as a responsibility regardless of our earnings as nothing is small or big to give to the orphans just as we are doing in AITA.” Majidadi concluded.
