Reactions As Senator Donates Burial Materials To Constituents



Reactions As Senator Donates Burial Materials To Constituents

Reactions have trailed the donation of 5,000 pieces of white fabric and clay pots by Senator Rufai Hanga, representing Kano Central Senatorial District, to his constituents.

According to the report, the donation was intended to help with the burial process for loved ones, in response to the frequent requests for burial assistance from constituents.

One of Hanga’s social media aides, according to a report by Premium Time, announced the donations on Facebook.

Auwal reportedly wrote, “We are used to these frequent requests from people soliciting money to buy white cloths and clay pots. Some have requested vehicles for transporting the dead.”

The donation has garnered positive and sparked some negative feedback on social media platforms.

A pro-Hausa organisation, which uses the handle @VoiceofHausa, said, “This is a constituency project of Sen. Rufa’i Sani Hanga, Senator representing Kano Central.

“Instead of building hospitals, he distributed 5,000 pots and white cloths for the burial of the people of his senatorial District.”

SILAS TAFI-WARWAR, tweeting as @silastafi, said, “I don’t understand…. Is he wishing them dead or something?

“What is the rationale behind this gift or donation? Constituency project or something?

“In the face of hunger, serious hardship and unemployment! This is all He can do?”

A tweep, FAISAL, who identifies as @Iamumarfaisal, said, “This should be his personal assistance to his community as an influential and wealthy person. But making this look [like] a performance index being a Senator is shameless and denigrates the people he represents. We can do better Arewa.”
