Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has been hailed by his party, after he covered the medical bills of Aisha Haruna, a 13 year-old orphan from Daura, Katsina.
Aisha, had suffered a second degree burns in a home accident, in which she needed reconstructive surgery. The former VP, on hearing of her predicament, swung into action, and paid all the medical treatments required.
In a statement on Thursday, the opposition party, hailed Atiku for his benevolence, while taking a swipe at President Muhammadu Buhari, for ignoring the plight of the young lady, even though she hails from his hometown, Daura.
Aisha Haruna: Atiku’s show of love and intervention in the life of Aisha Haruna, the 13 years old orphan from Daura, Katsina state, who was involved in an inferno, is a direct reflection of his inner personality as a sensitive leader, who cares about the plight of the citizens.
President Buhari’s inaction on Aisha’s matter is a sign that he is detached and aloof on the issues that concern the average Nigerian. Buhari never cared about Aisha’s plight, though she hails from his home town, Daura, Katsina state.
The fact remains that Nigerians have made up their minds to rally behind Atiku, who understands and identifies with them in their challenges and this determination is daily reinforced by the continued show of incompetence, disdain and arrogance by the Buhari Presidency
While President Buhari cares less about the good of Nigerians but promised them more hardship in the coming year, the Atiku, offers hope, having worked out templates to revamp our economy, revitalize our ailing infrastructure and raise the living standards of all Nigerians.
