“That is why we are giving the members Certificates of Credence as well as the Parent of the Year award to the Speaker, Rt Hon. Aliyu Umar Yusuf,, and his Deputy, Mrs Comfort Nwochiola. They have always been supporting the DCI any time we called upon them.

“We thank our Mummy, the SSG and founder of FAIWO, Dr. Mrs Folashade Arike Ayoade, for her support for widows and the payment of school fees for orphans in the society.
