Buhari’s N1m campaign donor, Mai Talle-Tara, returns from medical trip
The 90-year old woman who donated N1 million to the President Buhari campaign organization, Hajiya Fatima Mai Talle-Tara, has returned from her governmentsponsored foreign medical trip.
Hajiya Mai Talle-Tara came to limelight in January when she waited for about nine hours and donated her life saving of N1 million to the then All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Buhari, for his campaigns when he visited Kebbi State in January. Buhari went on to win the election on March 28, 2015.
Soon after Buhari took over, Hajiya Mai Talle-Tara fell sick after suffering a stroke.
However, the Kebbi State government took the responsibility of her medical expenses and flew her to the Iranian Hospital in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on October 4. Mai Talle-Tara returned Sunday evening after spending two weeks at the Dubai hospital.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Sunday night, Mai Talle-Tara thanked President Buhari and the Kebbi State government for their efforts toward giving her adequate medical care.
The nonagenarian, who spoke briefly in Hausa was full of smiles when some journalists visited her at the Kebbi State Government Lodge, Asokoro, Abuja. She said: “Na gode, na gode (I’m appreciative; I’m appreciative)”
Also speaking, the personal physician to the Kebbi State governor, Dr Abubakar Bawa Dakingari, who travelled with her to Dubai, said she was well treated and was recuperating fast.
