A Maiduguri-based philanthropist, Barrister Zannah Mustapha, has enrolled 643 more students into a newly built annex of his school that has been providing free education, school bus and feeding for orphans and other vulnerable children. The school proprietor, who was a Daily Trust Unsung Hero (2012), winner of the UNHCR 2017 NANSEN Refugees Award among others, founded his famous Future Prowess Islamic Foundation (FPIF) in 2007 and has been taking care of thousands of orphans and other less-privileged.
Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, while commissioning the new section of the school, extolled Barrister Mustapha’s philanthropy, his fatherly role to orphans – grown and minors as well as his other social interventions across the state.
“I assure you of support from the Borno State government towards improving teaching and learning conditions in the school,” Governor Zulum told the FPIF founder during the launch of the new school at Fori community of Jere Local Government Area of the state.
Our correspondent gathered that the school, which was initiated prior to Boko Haram crisis in 2009, has been admitting children orphaned by the 10-year-long insurgency in the state.
