MBF lauds Danjuma for positive impact on Nigerians
The Middle Belt Forum (MBF) has lauded the TY Danjuma Foundation for bringing hope to millions of Nigerians through its health and educational interventions, stating that no organisation nationwide rivals it.
In a statement yesterday in Abuja by its National President, Dr. Pogu Bitrus, the forum paid glowing tributes to General Theophilus Danjuma on his 82nd birthday, acknowledging him as a distinguished Middle Belter, who has committed over $100 million to welfare programmes via the foundation.
It also described the Taraba indigene’s chairmanship of the Victim Support Fund (VSF) as a demonstration of his commitment to ending misery against defenceless citizens by blood-sucking terrorists and enemies of the Nigerian state.
MBF noted that the foundation had been working with over 50 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to salvage the less privileged.
It continued: “In a nation almost populated by men and women who are afraid to speak truth, this son of the Middle Belt has never grown weary of speaking truth to power and calling for justice for all Nigeria’s ethnic nationalities.
“Having participated in the civil war, General (Theophilus) Danjuma knows the implications of crisis.
“To avoid a repeat of such dark moments, he has been in the forefront of calling on various previous governments, including the present, to urgently resolve the furious insecurity unleashed on Nigerian communities by Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers, and other criminal elements.
“In the 82 years of his life, half of this has been spent on public service and advocating for good causes.”
