It is now a new lease of life for Dahiru Buba, the 50-year-old Dukku Local Government native who trekked from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 and now suffering from limb ailment, as Gombe State Governor Alhaji Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya presented a Ford Galaxy (sharon) Car to the diehard APC supporter today in Abuja and a total of two million Naira.
It can be recalled that the media was recently flooded with Dahiru Buba’s story calling on the government and public spirited individuals to come to his aid after he developed limb complications from a solidarity trek he undertook to celebrate the President’s first term victory.
Buba, a business driver, met Governor Inuwa Yahaya at Abuja’s Gombe Governor’s Lodge.
He was accompanied in the state House of Assembly by the member representing Dukku North Constituency, Hon. Nasiru Abdulkarim, Special Advisor on Legislative Matters to the Governor, Hon. Hamma- Adama Dottuwa Ali Kumo and other members of the Assembly and stalwarts.
Governor Yahaya while presenting the gifts said,
“For taking the pains and risks to show solidarity with Mr. President and our great party, people like Buba should not be neglected.
” By embarking on that solidarity trek, Dahiru Buba had shown patriotism and support, he should therefore be appreciated and encouraged”.
“So on learning about his condition, first I directed that he should be taken to the hospital for proper medical attention and I am happy that he is now better after undergoing his first round of treatment “.Secondly we are now capping it up with a support that we hope can sustain him. Since he is a Driver, we are giving him this Ford Galaxy Sharon so he can use it as commercial transport vehicle to sustain his livelihood. We are also giving him the sum of 2 million Naira cash to enable him purchase a house within his locality since I learnt he is a tenant. So as far as we are concerned in APC and in this administration, no genuine effort or sacrifice will go unrewarded no matter how long it takes”.
” So on behalf of our dear President and our beloved party, we say a big thank you for your show of support and solidarity”.
He said even after returning from his 15-day journey with his earlier challenges, his spirit had never been dampened in his love for the President and his party.
As a loyal party man and as a breadwinner of his family, Buba promised to use the vehicle and the cash judiciously, saying the gesture truly motivated and spurred him.
