Ailing man who trekked for Buhari in 2015, gets a car, N2million



The Governor of Gombe State, Alhaji Inuwa Yahaya, has presented a car and the sum of N2m to a 50-year-old man, Dahiru Buba.

This was a day after PUNCH published a report of Buba narrating how people mocked him for trekking from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate the result of the 2015 presidential election won by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).

Buba is currently undergoing treatment over an ailment he developed after the exercise.

The Senior Special Assistant to the Gombe State Governor on Media, Ismaila Misilli, confirmed the development to our correspondent.

He said,

“This is as a result of good journalism; giving voice to the voiceless. Your medium granted an interview to the man who trekked from Gombe to Abuja in celebration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015. He has been presented a Space wagon car by the governor. The man is a driver by training and was given the sum of N2m.”

Buba, who had earlier requested a source of livelihood and shelter, said he was overwhelmed by the gesture of the government, adding that the gifts would be well used.

Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has revealed that he was a victim of police brutality when seeking re-election in 2014.

According to the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), the judicial panel set up at the state and federal levels would tackle the issues and redress injustice done to Nigerians.

He said: “I am a victim of police brutality myself. You can all recall what happened to me during my election of 2014.

“However, some policemen had also rendered good services to me, so not all of them are bad. Our police must be motivated to do well. Policemen must be well remunerated to be able to discharge their duties effectively.

The EndSARS protest was a noble course. It was supported here in Ekiti, not because of those involved but for the reason behind the action which we believe would help the police to do their job better.

“The youth protest in Ekiti was well intentioned and peaceful. The right to peaceful protest is an inalienable right. For the first time, we have a panel of enquiry at every level of government to tackle our issues. We must not resort to violence as a solution to our agitations. We must all speak in unison against violence as we did in unison against police brutality.

“Our youths are angry because as they were coming out of closure of schools over Coronavirus pandemic. They entered into ASUU strike; then, there is hunger in the land and the harsh economic situation in our country.

“The government has done many intervention programmes, proscribed SARS and introduced Youth Investment Fund and many others as a response to the youth agitations.

“I commiserate with the families of those who paid the supreme price. We identify with them. The panel that we set up will look into the reasons behind the protest and how best to address the issues raised, because the EndSARS protest had placed a moral burden on all of us that we must be vigilant.

“Our police must be motivated to do well. Policemen must be well remunerated. There must be good motivation for the police to be able to discharge their duties effectively,” he said.
