Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) spokesperson, Olisa Metuh, has announced scholarships for orphans at the Abuja Children’s Home

The scholarships are up to university level.

Metuh announced the scholarship award during his visit to the home to celebrate his 50th birthday with the less privileged in the society.

Metuh also visited the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp in Wassa, Abuja where he shared meals, distributed assorted food items and pledged to collaborate with relevant government agencies to provide drinking water in the camp.

He presented various food items, including grains, beverages and drinks to the IDPs after visiting various homes in the camp, where he met with families.

“I was deeply touched by their deplorable condition, especially the absence of basic amenities like drinking water, which prompted him to pledge to collaborate with relevant government agencies to provide potable water in the camp,” Metuh said.

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) Coordinator of IDP Relief in Abuja, Amina Hassan, commended Metuh for his gesture, which she described as the largest intervention from an individual to the IDPs.
