The wife of the President, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has distributed N250,000 to victims of the June 23, 2023, flood mishap that occurred at the TradeMore Estate, Lugbe, Abuja.
The donations came through her pet project, the Renewed Hope Initiative.
The first lady made the donations through her representative, the wife of the Vice President, Hajia Nana Shettima, who expressed her sympathy for the victim of the unfortunate incident.
According to the first lady, though no assurance exists that this kind of incident will not reoccur, especially when the rains are not yet over, she is optimistic that the outreach and intervention of the Renewed Hope Initiative will go a long way in reducing their pain at this time.
The first lady said that, though the Initiative is still in the process of registration by the CAC, she cannot turn the other eye under the present circumstances of the TradeMore Estate, which is in her domain.
In his response on behalf of the beneficiaries, the chairman of the Residents Association, Dr Adewale Adenaike, thanked Tinubu and the renewed Hope Initiative for the hand of kindness and support extended to them daring this trying time.
The beneficiaries received N250,000 per affected household.
A total of 57 households benefited from the outreach of the Renewed Hope Initiative.
