Mr. Dahiru Buba, who trekked from Gombe to Abuja over Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015 has been rewarded with a car and N 2 million from Inuwa Yahaya, the Gombe state governor.
WAR had last week reported how Buba, had cried out for help and financial assistance to treat limb pains he claimed sustained after the long trek.
This is even as Buba said he only got N10, 000 and a certificate after the trek.
The Gmbe state governor, on Monday, having received the information about Buba’s predicament rewarded him with a car and N2 million cash.
Mr. Ismaila Misilli, media aide to the governor, in a statement announced the reward.
“For taking the pains and risks to show solidarity with Mr President and our great party, people like Buba should not be neglected,” he said.
“By embarking on that solidarity trek, Dahiru Buba had shown patriotism and support, he should therefore be appreciated and encouraged”.
The governor said he made sure that medical attention was given to Buba, and that he (Buba) is now responding to treatment.
“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”.
