Condemning any attempts to politicise the tragedy, Governor Uba Sani affirmed that the incident was not linked to religious or ethnic differences.

The 109 serving senators have come together, pledging their solidarity and financial support in effort to aid the victims of the devastating drone attack in Tudun Biri, Kaduna state.

The generous gesture involves the collective donation of one-month salaries, totaling a significant ₦109 million, to assist those affected by the tragic incident.

A delegation led by the Deputy Senate President, Senator Jibrin Barau, visited Kaduna State to personally extend their sympathies to the affected community.

During the visit, Senator Barau expressed the Senate’s deep concern for the heartbreaking loss of over 100 lives in the unfortunate attack.

“In this hour of grief, we stand in solidarity with the affected people, their families, and the state government. On behalf of the Senate President, Goodwill Akpabio, and all 109 senators, we convey our heartfelt condolences,” Senator Barau solemnly stated.

“As a gesture of support, all 109 senators have unanimously agreed to donate their one-month salaries, totaling ₦109 million, to assist the victims,” he added.

The move has been welcomed by the Kaduna state governor, Senator Uba Sani, who expressed appreciation for the visit and support from both the executive and legislative branches in the aftermath of the incident. Governor Uba Sani, however, cautioned against exploiting the tragedy to stoke religious or ethnic divisions in the state.

Condemning any attempts to politicise the tragedy, Governor Uba Sani affirmed that the incident was not linked to religious or ethnic differences. He stated the unity among Christians and Muslims in Kaduna, underscoring their collective stance against attempts to sow discord. “Both Christians and Muslims are one,” he declared.

Governor Uba Sani also reiterated the state government’s commitment to enhancing security efforts and collaborating with security agencies to ensure the safety of residents. Furthermore, he renewed the call for the establishment of state police to bolster regional security operations.
