Laleye Dipo in Minna

A member of the National Assembly from Minna Niger State Hon. Abubakar Audu Buba, has confirmed receiving part of the grains promised federal lawmakers by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for distribution to their constituents in order to cushion the high cost of food items in the markets.

Buba, who is representing Chanchaga Federal Constituency, said that he received 1,700 bags of 25kg of rice and has begun distributing the item to his constituents in the 379 polling units in his constituency irrespective of political affiliation.

He said that lawmakers have received assurance from the President Tinubu that more grains would be delivered to their constituencies very soon.

He charged the committees saddled with the distribution of the items to ensure fairness and avoid the temptation of diverting the goods, warning that those caught in the act would be prosecuted.

Buba, however, said that special arrangements should be made for people living with physical disabilities and the elderly during the sharing.

The lawmaker praised Tinubu for his magnanimity, adding that “the action of Mr. President has shown that he is a compassionate leader.”
