Kwankwassiyya Foundation raises N260m in Kano

Senator Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso’s Kwank­wassiyya Develop­ment Foundation (KDF) received a boost in Kano at the weekend as friends and political associates of the former governor sup­ported it with over N260 million.
Speaking during an elaborate fund-raising cer­emony, the Chief Launcher of the event who dropped N55 million into the cof­fers of the Foundation, Arc Aminu Dabo, called on well-meaning Nigerians to contribute to the develop­ment of the Foundation which he said was a creation designed to give succour to the needy and less privi­leged in the society.
Dabo who was a former Commissioner of Land and Physical Planning in the first tenure of Kwankwaso as Governor of Kano State added that he personally donated N30 million, while his friends donated N25 million as their widows’ mite to support the charity works of the Foundation.
“We are making this donation to support the empowerment and skill ac­quisition programmes our mentor has embarked on. It is no longer news that Sen Kwankwaso is widely ac­cepted in the country and has continued to touch lives positively across Nigerians irrespective of religious and ethnic affiliations.”
He further stated that the Foundation is a non-politi­cal organisation, designed to help the common peo­ple and make them feel the good impacts of the soci­ety by being self-reliant and economically empowered.
Speaking during the event, Chairman of the Foundation fund-raising committee, Hon Nuhu Danburam who is also rep­resenting Kano Municipal at the House of Representa­tives, said the Foundation has continued to support Nigerians.
