The Asabe Shehu Yar’Adua Foundation (ASYARF) has called on the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to enact a law that will compel the Federal Government to implement social fund to take care of the elderly in the country.

The Founder and National President of the Foundation, Dr Amb. Asabe Shehu
Yar’Adua made the call at the weekend in Abuja in a statement she personally signed and made available to newsmen.

According to the ASYARF President, the passing of the Bill is necessary because
at the moment in the country, elderly people are left uncatered for, especially when they are not from rich background or have well-to-do children in the society.

“The Bill should also make it as a priority to take into account the number
of elderly people in the country. This can be possible when such Bill is also adopted at the state level.
