Buhari said at Beneshiek, headquarters of Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State that funds for the procurement of the foods were sourced from the donations from well-meaning Nigerians through her Get-Involved-Programme, a unit of her Future-Assured-project.
She also said she is interested in the success of the Federal Government headed by her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari.
“What I am after in particular is the success of my husband’s administration and he can’t do it alone except with the help of the governors, their wives and all members of our progressive party,” she declared at the flag off of nutritional foods and household utensils to IDPs who recently returned to their communities.
Hajia Buhari said she was happy that the flag off of the food distribution took place, noting that it was in fulfillment of her husband’s campaign promise to resettle displaced victims of Boko Haram insurgency and rescue all citizens abducted or held by Boko Haram, including the Chibok girls.
She said: “We thank almighty Allah that we have started fulfilling some of the campaign promises that we made.
“This is the essence of leadership.
“You make a promise and then fulfill it.
“We thank my dear husband who made sure peace is returning to the North East states.”
The wife of the Borno State Governor, Nana Shettima, commended Hajia Buhari for the distribution, adding that it was the third time the First Lady would visit the state to attend to the humanitarian challenges of the people.
Shettima promised that she will continue to collaborate with Hajia Buhari’s Future Assured project through her Support for Widows, Orphans and Tsangaya programme.
