N80m palliative: Northwest women cooperative hails Senator Uba Sani
- Northwest women cooperative has commended Senator Uba Sani over the distribution of lockdown/Ramadan palliatives to Kaduna households
- The women's group described Senator Sani as a good leader who means well for his people
- Senator Sani had on Saturday, April 25, kicked off the distribution of the palliatives
The Northwest Women Cooperative Society has described the senator representing Kaduna Central, Mallam Uba Sani as a rare leader with genuine concern for his people's wellbeing.
Legit.ng's regional reporter in Kaduna, Nasir Dambatta, reports that the northwest women group, in a statement signed by its leader, Habiba Muhammad, said the N80 million worth of foodstuffs distributed by Senator Uba as Ramadan/lockdown palliatives is enough testimony of his genuine concern for his people.
The women group observed that while most politicians, especially in the north only remember the people at election periods, very rare leaders like Senator Uba are almost all the time by their people.
"Senator Uba Sani is one among such rare breed of northern politicians with genuine concern for the people in all circumstances.
"In this trying time when most politicians are accused of hiding from their constituencies, Uba Sani has remained available and very much accessible to his people and even extends huge support to them," Habiba said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that amid coronavirus lockdown, Senator Uba Sani, unveiled a Ramadan support package targeting two million households in his federal constituency.
It was reported that the two million households targeted span across the seven local government areas of Birnin Gwari, Giwa, Igabi, Kaduna North, Kaduna South, Chikun, and Kajuru that made up his constituency.

The senator, while flagging off the distribution of the 10 trailer load of foodstuffs on Saturday, April 25, noted that the gesture was aimed at cushioning the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic as Ramadan fasting begins.
The lawmaker, in a message to the beneficiaries, said the whole world is bleeding due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said Kaduna state alongside other state governments took the bold, painful, but necessary decision on the lockdown order to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
The senator noted that aside from the distribution of palliatives, he joined his colleagues in the upper chamber of the National Assembly to donate half of their salaries to the fight against the pandemic.
He also disclosed that the Kaduna state caucus of the National Assembly members, which he chairs, donated N14 million to Kaduna state government to help combat the COVID-19.
