Foundation distributes 50 cows to Isheri residents

The Sallah celebration has ended but the smiles that it left on the faces of some residents of Isheri in Ogun State would linger for a while.

This is because the Nigerian-Tulip International Colleges (NTIC) Foundation slaughtered 50 cows and distributed to enable them celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir.
The event took place at the Nigerian Tulip International College, Isheri, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun, where they shared to about 2,000 families. The principal of the college, Yilmaz Ecran, said despite the hardship and economic crunch they had to fulfil their promise of the annual meat distribution to the less privileged:
“This is part of our social responsibilities. We have done this for more than 11 years, reaching out to 2,000 Nigerian families of all faiths on Sallah celebration like this.”
He stated that the motivation was to show kindness and ensure that every family irrespective of colour, religion was made happy at the festive period.
He explained that the crisis in his home country (Turkey) affected the gesture as majority of the donation usually comes from Turkey. He said his people are frightened and can no longer make donations because any attempt would land them in jail:
“Although several world powers tried to wade into the Turkey situation but has not yielded any positive result just because they get involved with humanitarian service.
“Despite the Nigerian situation they were able to get donations locally, even if the number of cows has reduced from a 1000 to 100 in 2016 and now 50, people should just look at the motive behind the giving.”
