The Senator representing Bauchi South at the National Assembly, Senator Shehu Buba Umar has distributed over 20,000 assorted bags of food stuff to the needy to assist them during the Ramadan fasting.

Buba said, being the only Senator that emerged under the All Progressives Congress among the three senators in Bauchi state, he was resolute in ensuring purposeful representation of the good people of the state in general.

He commended the state party chairman and the distribution committee under the chairmanship of the party’s organizing Secretary for doing a good job, saying he was impressed by what has been done.

“I am the only Senator who won under the APC in Bauchi state. To this regard, I am representing the APC in Bauchi South, Bauchi North and Bauchi Central, all APC members in Bauchi state are my people, I am representing them in Abuja and I hope that as we have arranged, these food items would go round all the nooks and crannies of Bauchi state”, he said.

“So, it means I am representing APC, PDP, PRP and all other political parties in the Nigerian Senate and I assure you that they were not left behind in this preparation for the distribution of the food items. In my capacity as their senator, we have carried them along and I am assuring you that they would get their own share, the food items would be taken to their doorsteps soon, in Sha Allah,” he said.
