Tracereporters –The Northern caucus of the House of Representatives have pledged  N400 million for the rebuilding of Tudun Biri community, Igabi local government area of Kaduna State that was recently bombed by a drone attack.
This was disclosed by the leader of the Northern caucus, Al Hassan Ado Doguwa, when he led members of the caucus on a condolence visit to Kaduna on Monday.
Doguwa announced that the donation was in addition to the earlier donation of N45 million made to victims by the Speaker House of Representatives and the Kaduna State Caucus in the green chamber of the National Assembly.
According to him, the project will include blocks of classrooms, a clinic, a police post, solar-powered boreholes and solar-powered electrification.
The former House Leader also announced that the three southern caucuses of the House of Representatives had promised to donate N30 million to the affected community.
He said the caucus was poised to provide the legal framework for compensation to the victims and ensure that families of the dead were adequately captured in the compensation.
At Barau Dikko Teaching Hospital, where the House members checked the welfare of the injured victims, Doguwa donated N1 million cash to the patients for their upkeep.
In his remarks, the State Governor, Senator Uba Sani urged the lawmakers to ensure that the victims get justice, by ensuring that the incident is investigated, so as to fish out the culprits.
According to him, investigating the incident is the most important thing that should be done by the National Assembly so as to prevent further recurrence of such mishap.
He said, “I am happy we are all on the same page with the President, Vice President and members of the National Assembly on the need for an investigation over the unfortunate incident.”
The Governor stressed the need for the National Assembly to look into the laws guiding the operations of the Nigerian security forces, saying that the legislations are obsolete and not in tandem with the current global practices.
He also thanked the lawmakers for their donation, saying the projects to be executed in the community will go a long way in changing the lives of the people.
