World’s First Professor of Digital Economy, cerebral businessman and philanthropist, Archbishop Prof Sam Zuga on July 26, 2022, made history again when his foundation “Samzuga Foundation” visited two Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camps in Markurdi, Benue State where food and other relief materials were distributed freely to the needy.
Bags of food items, grinding machines, cash and two cows at the two different IDP camps located at the Federal Housing Estate North Bank Makurdi and Daudu respectively, both in Benue State.
Several videos of the event appeared on social media, notably Facebook, a few hours after the visits. One of the videos of the visits posted on Facebook on his page showed three trucks all fully loaded with Sam Zuga-branded food bags being offloaded by members of Samzuga foundation surrounded by excited inmates of the camps at the Federal Housing Estate Makrudi.
Similarly, another video showed one of the two cows donated being slaughtered to prepare meals for the inhabitants of the camps.
