Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa has donated N100 million to 5,000 widows and other less privileged women in Plateau.
A member of Musa’s media team, Williams Gyang, disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday in Jos.
Gyang said that the donation is part of Musa’s philanthropic gesture, aimed at cushioning the hardship being faced by the beneficiaries.
He explained that the beneficiaries cut across various religions, saying that hunger, poverty and squalor knew no tribe or religion.
Maryam Abdullahi, one of the beneficiaries, thanked the footballer for the gesture and described him as God-sent.
“We are finding it difficult to feed our families because of the high cost of living.
”This money will go a long way to alleviate our sufferings and boost our petty businesses,” she said.
Musa has reportedly been carrying out such philanthropic gestures since he came into limelight as a professional footballer.
