Has­san, who on Satur­day an­nounced the do­na­tion for the mosque in Po­tiskum, said the do­na­tion was be­tween him and God.

“The do­na­tion is be­tween me and my God. I do­nated it for the re­con­struc­tion of the cen­tral Mosque in my home­town. You know it’s an an­cient town. So, I felt I should con­trib­ute for the build­ing of a be­fit­ting mosque. I do­nated the money from my pocket,” he said in a phone in­ter­view.

Has­san said the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment had pro­vided for N400 mil­lion in this year’s bud­get for the multi mil­lion Naira hospi­tal he built, do­nated to his con­stituency and named af­ter late Gov­er­nor of the State, Se­na­tor Mam­man Ali.
