Gov. Mai Mala Buni of Yobe on Wednesday donated three houses to the three widows of late Sheikh Goni Aisami, an Islamic cleric recently murdered in the state.
Presenting the houses’ documents to the Emir of Bade in Gashua, Alhaji Abubakar Umar Suleiman, Gov. Buni said the donation was in fulfillment of his promise to support Goni’s family.
Represented by Ustaz Babagana Kyari, Special Adviser to the Governor on Religious Affairs, Buni said the widows were houses of their own to look after their children.
Responding, Suleiman thanked the governor for the love and support of the family of the renowned cleric.
