Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has offered to pay the medical bill of Miss Aisha Haruna, who had second degree burns in a home accident.
Aisha, a 13-year-old orphan from Daura, Katsina State, was poorly treated at home owing to lack of money to facilitate her treatment.
Atiku’s attention was drawn to her plight by Atiku Cares Foundation (ACF) following a Facebook report.
A statement by Paul Ibe, media adviser to the former vice president, noted that Atiku, who is ACF’s grand patron, approved the immediate payment of Aisha’s hospital bills, including her plastic reconstructive surgery.
She was thereafter moved with an ambulance from her home in Daura to Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Kano where she is currently receiving treatment
