Saraki Donates Severance Package To LeahSharibu’s Family

.

Ex-Senate president, Bukola Saraki, has directed that the National Assembly Management should distribute his Severance Allowance to families of three victims of the insurgency in the North-East.

He also instructed that children of late senators be also included in the list of beneficiaries.

Saraki stated that the Severance Allowance should be used to support the families of Leah Sharibu, who is being held by Boko Haram.

Also to benefit from the money are children of late members of the 8th Senate who may require financial assistance in furtherance of their education, as a Trust Fund is to be established by the management of the National Assembly for the purpose.

According to him, 20% of the severance allowance is to be donated to the family of Leah Sharibu, while 20% is also to be paid to the family of Hauwa Liman, the aid worker brutally murdered by Boko Haram after she was captured.

Another 20% is to be donated to the family of the second aid worker, Hussaini Ahmed Khoisan, also murdered in the same circumstance by Boko Haram.

The remaining 40% should be used by the National Assembly Management to set up a TRUST FUND that will assist children of deceased members of the Eighth Senate who are in financial need for their education.
