A former governor of Benue State, Senator George Akume, has donated a giant fish to the senator representing Kaduna Central on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Shehu Sani.
Akume, who represents Benue North-West senatorial district on the platform of APC, made the donation weekend at the Tudun Wada residence of Senator Sani during the seven days fidau prayers of Hajiya Fatima Sani.
Hajiya Fatima, who is Sani’s mother, passed away penultimate Saturday at the age of 75 after a brief illness and Senator Akume was among senators that attended the fidau prayers.
The giant fish, which became the centre of attraction as soon as Akume’s aides brought it out from the car, was lifted by two men and taken into Senator Sani’s compound where residents and well-wishers began taking photographs with their mobile phones.
Earlier, Akume, who came in the same car with Senator Abdullahi Gumel (APC, Jigawa Northwest), said the number of people that came for the prayers showed that Senator Sani was a grassroots politician.
The senator, therefore, offered prayers for the repose of the soul of Hajiya Fatima and urged parents to always ensure good and qualitative upbringing of their children.
