Kwara state students under the aegis of the National Association of Kwara State Students(NAKSS), have expressed gratitude to Mallam Saliu Mustapha over food items donated to aid Ramadan fasting for indigent students in the state.
The students appreciation was conveyed in a statement co-signed by the President and spokesperson of the association, Muftau Mubarak and Lawal Ridwan respectively, a copy of which was sighted by our correspondent.
Mustapha is an international business man with interest in real estate and construction. He is also a frontline candidate for the APC National Chairmanship contest coming up later in the year.
The food items were donated through the Saliu Mustapha Foundation that is based in Ilorin.
According to the student leaders, the donated food items were shared amongst indigent students across schools in Kwara.
“The show of appreciation is preceded by the show of love by Mallam Saliu Mustapha via his foundation to some indigent students of Kwara State through the National Headquarters of the aassociation.
