The former first lady said e-library would go a long way to help students.
The wife of late President Umar Musa Yar’Adua, Hajiya Turai Yar’Adua, has appealed to the Federal Government to complete the e-library initiated by her late husband at the Government College, Keffi, Nasarawa State.
Mrs Yar’Adua said, “This is to remember my husband’s legacies and as an alma mater of the school and due to the importance of e-library to human and societal development.”
This is contained in a statement issued by the Secretary General of Keffi Old Boys Association (KOBA), Mr Sam Israel, a copy of which was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Keffi, Nasarawa State, on Monday.
The former first lady said e-library would go a long way to help students, when addressing President General of KOBA, Engr. Edward Ujege, and his National EXCO courtesy visit to the family of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua in Abuja on Monday.
She said that the project, if completed, would improve the standard of education in the state and country at large.
According to her, “I am overwhelmed with the visit, KOBA is one of the most organised old boys association in Africa.
“There is a need to put in necessary effort in place to ensure that my late husband has a thumb of reference and remembrance in his alma mater, Government College Keffi.”
Mrs Yar’Adua commended the effort of KOBA for remembering and identifying with the deceased family and assured them of support at all times.
