A certain young man Dahiru Buba who trekked from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate President Buhari’s election victory in 2015 has finally received help from the government after he cried out complaining of limb pain from the exercise.
The governor of Gombe state Gov Yahaya has reached out the man and presented him with a car and the sum of N2 million naira. The governor’s media aide Ismaila Misilli, said in a statement that Buba was taken to the Government House clinic for diagnosis. From the Government House clinic, he was referred to a private orthopedic hospital where he was further examined.
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.” The governor explained that Buba was rewarded with the car gift as support for his commercial transport business. He stated that the cash gift will enable the driver to purchase a home within his neighborhood.
“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 Buhari and our beloved party, we say a big thank you for your show of support and solidarity,” Governor Yahaya added.
Buba thanked the governor and the state for coming to his rescue after he cried out for help. He said even after his 15-day road trip on foot, and through all his financial difficulties, his love for President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) never reduced. He promised to use the car and the money judiciously, saying the gesture has motivated him to continue to support the APC.
