She commiserated with the villagers  over the loss of lives and properties during series of attacks them. “Thanks to the Army for the quick intervention and restoring peace to the good people of this community”.
The President explained that, NAOWA is a philanthropic non-governmental organisation formed by Army Officers wives to promote friendship among officers wives and support the less privileged in the society.
We are in Kaduna State to attend the ongoing Chief of Army Staff conference and as it has been our tradition to reach out to the needy, we have identified your communities to be among the communities to benefit from our programme this year“.
I am aware before now that your wives trek miles away to get water from ponds. “We are here to ease your water problems by donating 4 boreholes, one in each of the villages. From today, your water problem is over. You will not drink the water animals drink. By implication, it means henceforth, you will not suffer from water bone diseases“.
Mrs Buratai also presented tricycles to the physically challenged.
She therefore urged them to take good care of the water facilities for optimal durability.
Make good use of it and enjoy all season portable water. I also want to use this medium to urge you to embrace peaceful coexistence because no meaningful development can strive without peace“.
