The staff and the students affected by the fire incident that occurred in one of the hostels of the Government Girls Secondary School, Kawo area of Kaduna state have received some cash donation from their representative at the National Assembly.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that the lawmaker, Senator Uba Sani, who represents Kaduna Central at the Senate, on Monday, February 10, made over one million naira cash donations to the school.
The victims who received the cash support to cushion the effect of the losses they incurred were three matrons and some special students displaced from Borno state.
Senator Uba Sani, who visited the school to personally console the college community and to assess the extent of damage, sent the cash donations less than 14 hours afterward through his aides.
Appreciating the gesture on behalf of the college community, the principal of the school, Rakiya Ismail Ahmed, said Senator Uba had actually lived up to the promise he made to the victims and the school authority.
"The senator came yesterday to console us and promised to send support to the victims which he promptly did. He sent N500,000 cash to two of the matrons, N100,000 for the treatment of another matron who is in hospital and N150,000 for GCC students from Borno among other donations.
"The college community is indeed grateful to the Senator for this timely support and for making his words his bonds. We pray Allah to bless him and to reward him abundantly," the principal said.
One of the matrons who benefited from the cash support, Jummai Shehu, after confirming receipt of the money, said she was impressed by the swiftness of the senator's response.
She said: "We wish all other leaders would have such a large heart to respond to people in distress with such promptness as Senator Uba did."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that Senator Sani challenged the entire northern establishment on the urgency of rising to check the educational decline in the region.
It was reported that Sani threw the challenge while giving out funds to support the education of 175 brilliant indigent senior secondary students in Kaduna on Monday, January 13.
