Tinubu, Shettima’s Wives Visit Yobe, Gift N20m To Victims Of Flood

Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and Hajiya Nana, spouse of his running mate, Kashim Shettima, on Saturday led a delegation of APC Women Campaign team to donate N20 million to 400 flood victims in Yobe State.

This was contained in a statement issued by the media office of the campaign team in Abuja on Saturday.

The development is coming barely four days after the delegation extended a hand of generosity to communities affected by the flood in Makurdi, Benue State capital.

The team, which was warmly received by Benue State governor, Dr Samuel Ortom, presented relief materials and a cash donation of N20m to the affected victims.

While addressing the victims of the flood disaster, Tinubu said, “We found it necessary to visit Yobe State to commiserate with the people over the natural disaster that has destroyed their livelihoods.

“We sympathised with the victims and prayed that God averts a recurrence.”

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, who warmly received the delegation, appreciated them for the visit and donations.

According to him, the donated cash and food items will go a long way to bring succour to the victims.

The delegation also visited the palace of the Emir of Damaturu, Alhaji Shehu Hashimi Ibn El-Kanemi II, where they commiserated with the respected monarch over the recent demise of his son, Abba Sadiq Shehu Hashimi.

The APC women’s campaign team has continued to identify with victims affected by the recent flood disaster in some states across the country where cash, food and essential household items have so far been donated to the victims.
