APC has denied abandoning 90 year old Hajia Fadimatu Mai Talle Tara, the old woman who donated her N1 million savings to the Buhari campaign organization. This is in reaction to a Facebook post by one Idis Kuringafa who shared photos of Hajia Tara and said she is down with partial stroke and had been abandoned by the party. In a statement released today by Lai Mohammed, APC said since Hajia Tara was diagnosed with partial stroke, she had been on admission at the Sir Yahaya General Hospital in Birnin Kebbi with all her medical bills being taking care off by the Kebbi state governor.
"When she was discharged from the hospital after 10 days, she was taken to her
home town of Koko, where she has been under the care of the resident medical officer, Dr. Kola, who reviews her condition and ensures she gets physiotherapy, in addition to being in constant touch with the Consultant in Birnin Kebbi, Dr. Abubakar Dakingari. The Kebbi State Government has also approved 4 million Naira for her and her attendant doctor to travel to Dubai for further treatment, but she has been too weak to travel. Since Haj Maitalle returned to her home in Koko, the Governor, the First Lady and Sen. Aliero have been in touch with her. The First Lady has personally visited her three times, the Governor and Sen. Aliero once each and the House of Representatives member from her constituency over four times. We have gone to this great length to provide full details of Haj. Maitalle’s condition in order to give Nigerians the correct information about her situation. We do not know what informed the wicked, irresponsible and downright deceitful story that the delightful woman has been abandoned even after she gave her life earnings in support of Buhari’s presidential campaign. The story of Haj. Maitalle’s purported abandonment is a figment of the imagination of the fellow who wrote it,” the statement read
