Former Governor of Gombe state, Inuwa Yahaya, presented Dahiru Buba with the gifts.

Buba, a native of Dukku local government area of Gombe state, sought financial assistance to treat limb pains that he allegedly developed after the walk.

He 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”.

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.

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”, he said.
