Mallpai Foundation has been berated for not utilizing the fund that was meant for developing the less privileged in the society.
Umar Ahmed noted that the Kebbi State-based empowerment foundation, claims to have empowered the less-privileged in society and enrolled children in schools.
He noted that for the past 10 years there has been quite a bit of distance between the talk and the walk in the foundation operations.
“The operations of the Foundation is not innovative, adding that the causes were vague. The funds are being targeted towards a wide and unending scope of unsustainable and imprecise projects,”
Ahmed bemoaned that there was no figures to back the impact they claim to have achieved.
“It means little or nothing is done with quality of funds being collected from our state to carry out humanitarian and development projects. I have heard several stories of how they claim to help people, but turn out to be untrue with outdated content on media platforms and poorly built website showing pure lack of focus and a high level of inconsistency”.
He explained that the 10th year anniversary of the Kebbi-based Foundation was celebrated at the Transcorp Hilton in Abuja.
“This is terrible seeing the line-up of invited guest list. The funds received should improve the condition and livelihood of the benefactors that they have identified, not being massively spent on a massive celebration with high dignitaries in attendance. This is simply a show.”
Ahmed said he is not happy with the way things are being done in terms of development in Kebbi state.
“I have been unhappy with how things are being done in terms of development work in the state. What irks me most at this moment of my return is to see what is currently being made of the 10th anniversary of Mallpaifoudation which is meant to empower and train the resident of Kebbi
“With a passion to drive out poverty and enhance the standard of living. Ending poverty is possible, but it will take every one of us. Each of us has a role to play. With the power of many voices speaking together, we can call on companies and legislators to change the laws and practices that keep people in poverty in Nigeria”
