“Apart from that, those with severe cases that require surgery, such patients will be referred to ABUTH for operation on my bill.
“This is with a view to fulfilling my campaign promises. Apart from that, we will soon settle WAEC, NECO and JAMB fees for 2016/2017 candidates in my constituency,’’ he said.
The APC Zonal Chairman, Zone one, Alhaji Abubakar Rilwanu, lauded the lawmaker’s gesture, saying, “as a party, APC must appreciate your efforts because you have been able to fulfill some of the promises made to the electorate”.
