Corruption in Nigeria is a national problem that should be tackled by every citizen, alongside the president. To that regard, Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius, who is a pensioner, has donated her entire monthly pension of N10,000 as her way of supporting the war against corruption which President Muhammadu Buhari has embarked on. According to a statement by the Presidency, Mrs. Julius retired as a cleaner from the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, and is dedicating her pension towards the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius believes in an anti-free community and is confident that President Buhari is a tested man of integrity who can be trusted to restore the lost glory of Nigeria by drastically curbing corruption in the country. She also commended the President’s efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitate internally displaced persons. The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, who received the donation on behalf of the President 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.
Mrs Rose Arabameh Julius reminds Nigerians of Late Hajiya Koko, popularly called Mai Talla Tara, who played a vital role in Buhari’s Campaign. She donated the sum of N1 million to Buhari in 2015, to show her support while he was a presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Hajiya Koko had offered virtually her life’s savings, because she admired the honesty and discipline of Mr. President. The impact of Hajiya Koko on the political life of Buhari, left him in mourning when the old woman passed on in February at the age of 95, after a brief illness.
This woman, like the widow in the bible, gave their all as contributions to fight against corruption in Nigeria. What is your own contribution? If they can fight against this deadly, social and economic vice, you too can!
