Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday in Abuja, commended the activities of an international group, Our Collective Futures, for its humanitarian activities, stressing that humanitarian issues need more actors in Nigeria.
Mrs Buhari said this when members of the organisation paid her a courtesy visit at the State House in Abuja.
She said it is important to have many successful professionals such as members of this group who always remember the underprivileged and support them from time to time.
“The world is in need of more humanitarian actors so that humanitarian issues will reduce to the barest minimum, that is why Future Assured will not rest on its oars in helping those that are in need;” she said.
Speaking earlier, the leader of the group and President of Klytec Inc., Dr. Leong Ying, said they were in Nigeria to discuss business opportunities with relevant national and private groups.
He said members of the group span across many professions and disciplines and are successful in their various fields of endeavour.
Also speaking, Dr. Abiodun Asekun, a member of the group and Chief Executive of Cada Aero, a US based aeronautics firm, said there are many successful Nigerians in the group who are willing to bring their resources to provide humanitarian support in the country.
