The Nigerian Ambassador to Russia, Prof. Abdullahi Shehu Yibaikwal, has lauded the establishment of the Gagdi Foundation, noting that it will serve as a veritable tool for a sustained fight against poverty and the provision of better living condition for the downtrodden.
He therefore commended the founder, Rt. Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi for coming up with such a lofty idea, saying it will ameliorate the sufferings of the less privileged members of the society; beyond politics and religion.
Prof. Yibaikwal was at the corporate headquarters of the Foundation, along Yingi-Rayfield road in Jos, to felicitate with Gagdi for birthing a world class humanitarian organization that prioritizes uplifting humanity, irrespective of race or creed.
The diplomat disclosed that his first point of call on arriving Jos was to visit the corporate headquarters of Gagdi Foundation, to identify with the lofty ideals of the organization, where he pledged total support in whatever form, to help the it achieve its set objectives, as he was not disappointed by what he saw.
The Bogghom Prince declared total support for the reelection bid of Rt. Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi for a second term as the member representing Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, and pledged to exhaust all his political influence to ensure that Gagdi emerges victorious in the forthcoming 2023 polls.
Prof. Abdullahi Shehu Yibaikwal maintained that Gagdi has surpassed all expectations of a performer in his first term in office, and the political exigencies of PKK has favoured his candidacy to clinch a return ticket to the National Assembly in 2023. He thereby called on all well meaning sons and daughters of PKK to support Gagdi, for a better representation of the constituency.
In his response, Rt. Hon. Yusuf Adamu Gagdi appreciated the august visitor, and the accolades showered on him, maintaining that such words humbled him and rekindled his passion to achieve the best results in whatever he sets his mind on.
Gagdi said he always has innermost peace anytime he puts smile on the face of any individual through humanitarian act, and such had spurred him to establish the Gagdi Foundation; as a separate arm to render humanitarian services outside his legislative functions of providing constituency projects to his constituents.
He said Gagdi Foundation is a vehicle through which he will reach out to humanity irrespective of religion, political or ethnic affiliations.
He promised to use the experience garnered in his first tenure to attract greater democracy dividends to PKK, if reelected in 2023, adding that political power comes from God alone, and always expressed through the will of the electorate at the polls.
