Prof replies to his emails very well. If Webmaster will assist you with his email, you might reach him easier.

Social media platforms almost wholly serve, or are used for social purposes with mostly ‘entertainment undertones’. But this time, one of these platforms was in the news for a different reason—a relatively rare one.

Kano Online Forum, a social media discussion group, was persuaded by (a) comment(s) from its member(s) to trace a new path in its usage of internet-based platforms.

Kano Online, well before the entrenchment of bigtechs like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, has been a popular online hub in Nigeria for robust intellectual engagements—going back to over a decade and half. Several articles and papers were published on its website, www.kanoonline.com.

This time, the group went ‘humanitarian’—and it was all inspired by a comment on its Whatsapp group—a comment calling on members to help internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the war-ravaged North East (Nigeria).

Members complied—and eighty (80) households among the IDPs, drawn from host communities and orphanages in Maiduguri on Wednesday took home food and housekeep items.

According to a member of the forum who spoke to YERWA EXPRESS NEWS, and who was entrusted with the responsibility to do the distribution, Barr. Mustapha Ali Busuguma, ‘it all started with a chat’!
He said the forum is supposed to be an internet-based social group, but it nonetheless saw the need, following suggestions, to help the needy especially during the fasting period.

A total of 40 bags of rice (25kg), soaps, detergents, Vaseline and Maggie cubes, among other things, were mobilized since the comments and subsequently distributed.

Mr. Busuguma said the intervention, though little, is a clear example of good use of social media platforms, emphasizing that ‘everything was motivated by a single, genuine chat; and we did it’!

He called on other social groups to take cue.

The beneficiaries who said they do not use social media and hardly know what it is, added that they are ‘nonetheless, grateful’.

Thank you Admin,

The website is very resourceful but sadly does not have the list of names I am after.

A quick google revealed that Prof Abdallah is no longer at BUK, but the VC of NOUN. I guess he'll be even harder to reach. But I'll keep trying.

Thanks so much for your help.

Hello Admin,

I really want to get in touch with Abdalla. I want his list of names he shared on this thread. The links he shared are no longer active. If you could please give me his email address, I'd really appreciate it. I can give you my email address so you don't post it on the thread. Thank you.
