Evicted 85-year-old Retired Soldier In Kaduna Gets New Apartment (photo)

 


Chief of Army Staff Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai has presented a 3-bedroom house to an 85-year-old retired warrant officer, Paul Ojo, who was evicted from his home by the Kaduna State Government led by Governor Nasir El-Rufai.

Igbere TV recall that Ojo was evicted from his former residence at Kabala Costain Kaduna on August 17.

Represented by the General Officer Commanding (GOC) 1 Division Nigerian Army Kaduna Maj.-Gen Usman Muhammad, Buratai said on Tuesday that he was moved by the unfortunate circumstances that led to Ojo’s eviction.

“I was emotionally touched by your plight and consequently directed that an alternative permanent accommodation be secured for you and your family,” he said.

“Pursuant to this, we were able to secure a more befitting house at No. 26 Yakowa Street Anguwan Galadima Kaduna.

“It is thus my pleasure to formally present this 3-bedroom house to you as a mark of goodwill and uncommon gesture.

“The Nigerian Army has always demonstrated its willingness to impact on personnel welfare and that of their families.”

Igbere TV reports in reaction, the retired officer thanked Buratai for coming to his aid, saying it was a demonstration that his services to the army and Nigeria were not in vain.

“I was ejected from my two-bedroom house, they scattered my things but today, the Chief of Army Staff has made it possible for me to live in the type of house I never hope I will be able to build,” Ojo said.

He prayed that Nigeria would overcome its security challenges so that the country can record economic growth and development.
