Senator representing Bauchi South, Senator Ali Wakili has donated a tricycle popularly known as keke NAPEP to the family of one of APC supporters who lost his life during the last election.
It would be recalled that Bello Yahaya lost his life during the 2015 governorship and State House of Assembly elections in Bauchi State.
Senator Wakili while presenting the Keke NAPEP to the boy’s father in Bauchi yesterday said the gesture was to augment the income of the family.
He urged the family to regard the boy’s death as an act destined by God adding that although the boy cannot be brought back to the family, he promised that he will continue to support them in any way possible.
Responding, a politician and a former deputy Local Government chairman, Abubakar Babanya commended the senator for the donation saying that the senator is an upright politician who fulfils promises.
He said that the senator is the only politician who still remembers the families of the slain boy.
He advised other politicians to emulate the senator by identifying with the less privileged in the society instead of only remembering them during elections after which they will be dumped.
Bello Yahaya’s father thanked Senator Ali Wakili for remembering the family once more adding that what the senator has been doing to the family has helped them a lot despite the loss of their son.
He recalled that the senator has given them similar assistance in the past? which helped in sustaining the family by augmenting their meagre income.
