“It’s Not Sacrifice”: Kano Senator Explains Why He Donated 1 Million Pots, White Cloth to Graveyards

  • Rufai Sani Hanga has countered critics who condemned his recent donations to the people in his constituency
  • The Kano lawmaker disclosed that the gesture was something he had been doing even before his election in 2023
  • Senator Hanga came under heavy criticism recently for donating pots and burial materials, an act of kindness many perceive in the polity as irrelevant

TheTalk.NG journalist Esther Odili has over two years of experience covering political parties and movements.

Rufai Sani Hanga, the senator representing Kano Central in the House of Assembly, has explained why he donated burial materials to his constituents.

As reported by Daily Trust, Hanga said he donated over 2000 clay pots and 10,500 yards of white cloth (called ‘Likkadani’ in Hausa) to the Muslim graveyards in his constituency to please God and seek his eternal reward.

The Kano lawmaker added that it was not part of his constituency project as propagated by critics who, out of hatred and malice, spread the misinformation.

Recall that the senator was heavily criticised after donating the burial items to 15 local government areas in his senatorial zone last week.

Reacting via a first press conference, Hanga said the gesture was a family legacy he grew up to see and inherited, hoping to continue to dosa throughout his time on earth.

“We made the donation to Kano state committee for the graveyards headed by Dangoribar Kano and district head of Tarauni Local government. We had found out that clay pots were lacking in most of our graveyards and decided to donate,” he explained.
