“Since the time I trekked, the limb pain has been growing by the day. I am appealing to my governor, Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State and the party leadership to help me look for medical assistance,” he was quoted to have said.


Buba reportedly said life is becoming unbearable for him as the pain persists.

He added that the hardship is such that he cannot even pay his children’s school fees.
