Adefulire now SSA to Buhari on SDGs, woman donates pension againstcorruption

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Mrs. Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire as his Senior Special Assistant on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), reports ITRealms.

This is coming as a woman pensioner has donated her pension to Buhari's war against corruption.

Mrs. Orelope-Adefulire served as Deputy-Governor of Lagos State in the last administration and is an accomplished politician with many years of experience in public service.

She has also served as Commissioner for Women Affairs and Poverty Alleviation in Lagos State. 

Meanwhile a pensioner, Mrs. Rose Arabameh Julius, has donated her entire monthly pension of N10,000 to support the Buhari administration's war against corruption. 

Mrs. Julius,  who retired as a cleaner from the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, also promised to contribute  N1,000 every month out of her  pension towards the rehabilitation of Internally Displaced Persons. 

The pensioner said that she was making the donation because of her conviction  that President Muhammadu Buhari, is a tested man of integrity who can  be trusted to restore the lost glory of Nigeria and drastically curb corruption in the country. 

The pensioner also commended the President's efforts to end the Boko Haram insurgency and rehabilitate internally displaced persons. 

Receiving the donation on behalf of President Buhari, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina 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," Mr. Adesina said.
