President Mohammadu Buhari hinted
that the failure of the elites to address the welfare and educational needs of
the less privileged in the society is regrettable.
Speaking during the breaking of fast
at Aso Rock villa on Monday night, the president lamented the excruciating
poverty in the country, saying the development has continually made him
uncomfortable

He charged the privileged Nigerians to support his
administration in ameliorating the situation and providing succour to the
people.
Buhari pointed out that the Federal Government introduced
the “school feeding project, TraderMoni and other people-friendly programmes”
to better the lot of the downtrodden.
He, therefore, commended Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for
“successfully managing the school feeding and TraderMoni programmes.”
His words: “When I drive around the country, what upsets me
very much is the status of our poor people in this country – you see young
people, the so-called Almajiris with torn clothes, with plastic bowl. They are
looking basically for what to eat.
“The question of education (to them) is a luxury. I think
the Nigerian elite are failing. We should have a programme that should at least
guarantee some basic education for our people no matter how poor they are.”
