Sabo spent N7 million on the less fortunate in his neighborhood alone, according to Reuben Buhari, a former SA Media to late Governor Yakowa of Kaduna State.
Despite the uproar, according to RegionIntel the delegate was reported to have purchased sporting facilities and cleared certain school meals and medical debts, while sending the remainder to various community assistance groups.
Sabo was chastised for collecting the money in the first place, while others praised him, claiming that if he hadn’t done so, he wouldn’t have accomplished so much, and that whether he collected or not, others would be given the same amount.
In his words, Buhari said,
“He bought jerseys, paid school fees and hospital fees. He distributed the rest to other support groups.”
“Whatever is the argument on whether he was right in collecting the money or not, my consolation is that hundreds of the less privileged in his community are smiling today. For that, I say welldone Tanko,” he added.
Tanko Rossi Sabo was one of the Kaduna State delegates at the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) National Convention, where former Vice President Atiku Abubakar was elected as the party’s Presidential candidate.
Recall that theGazetteNGR reported that Delegates at the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential convention were allegedly walking away with about $35,000 each from the two frontrunner in the just concluded PDP primaries; presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar and Nyesom Wike, not including other allocations.
In a nutshell, 14 presidential candidates will compete for the party’s ticket in Abuja on Saturday.
