Abubakar Sadeeq, the founder of the Abubakar Sadeeq Foundation, an NGO, on Wednesday called on wealthy Nigerians to support the needy during Ramadan period.

Sadeeq made the call while presenting food items to Nigas Rehabilitation and skills Acquisition Training Centre for drug addicts and mentally challenged persons in Kaduna.

He said: “in view of the numerous financial challenges faced by such centres, there is the need for well-meaningful citizens and groups to assist the inmates in such places.”

Sadeeq explained that it was part of the efforts of his organisation to use Ramadan period to reach out to the centre with such donations.

The founder, Nigas rehabilitation centre, Malam Yusuf Maduru, thanked the donor for positively responding to the needs of the centre.

He noted that the centre had so far transformed no fewer than 1,500 mentally challenged and drug addicts into entrepreneurs that were now self-reliant, adding that the centre needed more support from everyone in the society.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that the items donated included bags of rice, oil, spaghetti and soap and detergents.
