In her remarks, leader of the delegation, Hajia Hadiza Wakili, who spoke on behalf of the Forum Chair and Wife of the Senate President, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, said:“We are moved by the rising and alarming reports of hunger, starvation and malnutrition of our displaced citizens, especially young infants and children. We hope our contribution will go some way to alleviate the heavy public burden of care for our sisters, brothers and children in these displaced communities, as canvassed by the Wife of The President, Federal Republic of Nigeria, Her Excellency, Mrs. Aisha Buhari.”
