“As the journey towards 2023 is getting closer, I chose to make my retirement from public office simple and memorable by identifying with the needs and aspirations of the youth and the less privileged in our society. That is what the foundation is all about.
“Being the most energetic and active segment of the society, the youths have a great role in shaping the future of any nation, especially at this critical moment.
“The quality of youth groomed in any society has a direct correlation with the opportunities provided to them by the privileged few as a way of giving back to the society.
“This is the vision behind setting up the Aminu Masari Youth Empowerment Foundation as my humble contribution to humanity,” the governor said.
Masari, therefore, urged wealthy individuals in the country to give back to society by supporting youths, women, orphans, and physically challenged persons to become self-reliant and productive.
During the occasion, 200 wheelchairs were distributed to physically challenged persons drawn from the 34 local government areas of the state.
