Sukuku is an environmental preserve – a remote mountainous village community located in the isolated surreal landscape of Kwali Area Council terrain. A truly breathtaking environment & choice destination of national geographic description.

As the 1st Lady’s food distribution team arrived, the whole atmosphere assumed a festive dimension, as the community stood agog with drumming, dancing, traditional chants and songs that welcomed the Renewed Hope delegation. Explaining the reason for such expression, the Sukuku Community leader commended Hon. Adedayo and her team from the Women Affairs Secretariat for navigating the long, bad road to locate a people cut away by stretches of mountains, bushes, bad roads, as well as lack of social amenities like mobile network and electricity supply;

“On behalf of the Sukuku community, I thank the wife of our president for remembering us with these food items. We really appreciate it. And I can say that this has never happened before in this community. We thank Hon. Minister of FCT, Barr. Nyesom Wike, for starting the construction of our road, because you would not be able to get here with the palliatives before the construction, and that is how we have been cut off from the rest of Kwali and even the Abuja city Centre. Please do well to send our warm regards to the First Lady and our Honourable Minister, Mr. Project, they have done us well.”

Other places also visited with food items in this phase included Kekeshi in Abaji Area Council, Gishiri in AMAC, Abuja Children’s Home Karu, Unity Children’s Home Gwako in Gwagwalada Area Council, Dutse Baupma in Bwari Area Council and Life Camp in AMAC.

The FCT Zero Hunger 6.0 campaign is carried out as part of the First Lady’s Renewed Hope Initiative, Social Investment Programme.
