Tinubu Begins Distribution Of Rice To Kano Residents

Nigerian politicians are notorious for giving handouts,
popularised as ‘stomach infrastructure’ by ex-Governor Ayo
Fayose, to would-be voters before and during an election
period.

Bola Tinubu, using his self-named non-governmental
organisation, has begun distributing bags of rice and other
foodstuffs to Kano residents.
The All Progressives Congress’s national leader was in the
news in March for donating to Katsina (President
Muhammadu Buhari’s hometown) market fire victims.
People were handed ‘Jagaban’ bags of rice, as seen in a
video that surfaced on social media.

An Instagram username @mansurah_isah of Today’s Life
Foundation uploaded pictures of the event with a caption
appreciating Mr Tinubu’s foundation for the food items.
The donation followed Mr Tinubu’s donation of foodstuffs
and other items to orphanages in Lagos and Ogun.
The donations were part of activities marking the
celebration of Mr Tinubu’s 69th birthday.
