Dahiru Buba, the man who trekked from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2015 electoral victory has gotten a car and two million naira from the Gombe State Governor, Alhaji Inuwa Yahaya.
Nigerians will recall that he said he only got a certificate after the walk and he developed a pain in his limbs which made him cry out for help.
An official statement from the Governor’s office read:
“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,” he said.
“As far as we are concerned in the 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”.
