Senator representing Kano Central, Rufai Sani Hanga, says he donated over 2000 clay pots and 10,500 yards of white cloth (called ‘Likkadani’ in Hausa) to the Muslim graveyards in his constituency to please God and seek His eternal reward.

Hanga said it was not part of his constituency project as propagated by cynics and his opponents who out of hatred and malice spread the misinformation.

The senator came under criticism when he donated the items to 15 local government areas in his senatorial zone last week.

In his first press conference since after his election in 2023, Hanga said the gesture was something he had been doing even before his election and it was a family legacy he grew up to see and inherited, hoping to continue to do throughout his time on earth.

“We made the donation to Kano state committee for the graveyards headed by Dangoribar Kano and district head of Tarauni Local government. We had found out that clay pots were lacking in most of our graveyards and decided to donate,” he explained.

Hanga said he faced health challenges after his election as senator spending seven months in hospitals in Nigeria and later flown to Egypt and England, where he spent 3 months each on hospital bed.

The lawmaker said despite his health condition which he is still recuperating from, he managed to make meaningful contributions to make life better for his constituents from his personal resources.

He said he succeeded in inserting some projects for his constituency in the 2023 budget, which he will follow up to ensure implementation.
