Ayodeji revealed plans to expand the Ramadan feeding initiative nationally, with a target of feeding over half a million people across various states.

He said, “Since Monday when Ramadan started, we have been cooking and giving food, not necessarily in NASFAT, we take all these foods to various locations In Lagos.

“We target to feed 60,000 people in Lagos and likewise in other states. Nationally we want to feed around 500,000 people and by the time we finish Ramadan, NASFAT will have fed over a million people.”

According to the president, “As NASFAT’s Ramadan feeding programme gains momentum, it stands as a beacon of hope for countless individuals grappling with the harsh realities of the current economic climate.”

“Through collaborative efforts and unwavering faith, the organization aims to instill optimism and foster a spirit of community resilience, paving the way for a brighter future for Nigeria and its people,” he added.
