Alhaji Isa Kalanjeni, member of the House of Representatives, on Monday August 29, donated assorted relief materials worth N5 million to flood victims in Bachaka, Gudu Local Government of Sokoto State.
Presenting the items, at Bachaka, Kalanjeni, who represents Gudu/Tangaza Federal Constituency, said the gesture was aimed at alleviating the suffering of the victims.
Kalanjeni reportedly said, ”My visit here is to personally commiserate with you in your most trying times.
“My donation is not in any way a compensation for your huge losses, as only God who destines the disaster is capable of doing that.
”You should, however, regard the unfortunate disaster as an inevitable act of God.”
The lawmaker said he had reported the incident to the House of Representatives with a view to getting relief for the victims.
He said, ”I have also written to the National Emergency Management Agency for its prompt action.’’
The District Head of Bachaka, Alhaji Aminu Abdulahi, according to reports, commended the lawmaker for the gesture and promised judicious distribution of the items to the victims.
The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Tangaza Local Government, Alhaji Madugu Ruwa-Wuri, called for prayers to prevent re-occurrence of the incident.
