Turaki Adamawa, Atiku Abubakar Lends A Helping Hand

Published

on

Those who know Atiku Abubakar, the Turaki Adamawa and Zege Mule U Tiv well enough would attest to his nature of giving.

An easy soul, a cheerful and humorous man, a good husband according to his wives and indeed a lovely father.

In times past, Abubakar, now jokingly called Turaki Nigeria, has been of help to many in need. His core concerns have been in areas of governance, increasing human welfare especially among the poor, and providing education for needy Nigerians both home and abroad via scholarship. These are interests Abubakar has been able to contribute his own quota to via his philanthropy.

Deep pocket, a jolly man, no wonder a lot of people have insisted that his attempt at becoming the President of Nigeria is not for selfish reasons after all.

In the wake of the Benue State flooding, there have been hues and cries with a lot of people gnashing their tooth. At least, 10,000 people have been displaced lacking shelter and basic necessities of life.

Lost properties have been estimated to be worth millions of Naira. However, while the owners of these properties are still seeking a safe place to keep their head, very few people have been lending hands of assistance.

In the typical manner of Nigerians, there have been those whose main business is to criticize the government and naturally they have been at work.

Of course, it is not their fault, as the government has hardly been proactive. Being proactive exceeds simply sending emergency worker to the site. This position having been established, it is also natural to also ask what the so-called billionaires of Nigeria have been able to do to help their brothers and sisters in need. Where are the Mohammed Indimi of this world, where is Ibrahim Babangida, Sayu Dantata or even Abdulsamad Rabiu. These made men who could readily make donations without feeling the pains. Or is it that Benue State is not core north?

The only northern man who has proved that he is indeed his brother’s keep is Abubakar. In the wake of the natural disaster blamed on climate change he showed his love for the welfare of his brothers and sisters dolling out N 5 million Naira to the flood victims. While it might be a paltry sum, such scantily donations coming from other well-meaning Nigerians would also help and if not make the pains of the people of Benue State pass swiftly at least cushion some effect.

Since the resting of the company, its assets have also been silent taken over by the Lagos State government. The recent publication of Visionscape as one of the several companies that has refused to pay taxes to the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS), is a new headache for Makanjuola.
