NGO Save Bauchi State, donates drinks worth N200, 000 to the family of the late Prime Minister of Nigeria, Sir Abubakar Tafawa Balewa.
The items were donated to the family on Sunday, October 2, as the chairman of the organisation, Alhaji Zaharadeen Baba-Tako, disclosed that he and other members of the organisation had come to pay homage.
Baba-Tako said that the Prime Minister would not be easily forgotten considering the roles he played in the struggle for the nation’s independence and political development.
He said that the least the people of Bauchi state could do in appreciation was to identify with the family of the deceased.
Quoting some parts of the first stanza of the Nigerian national anthem, “the labour of our heroes past shall never be in vain,” Baba-Tako said the deceased must be honoured for his sacrifices.
Baba Abubakar Tafawa Balewa, the eldest son of the late prime minister, who received the organisation in the family house, thanked them for the visit and commended the organisation for their move to assist the family with the items they brought.
