Senators visit survivors, donate N4m

The Chairman, Senate Committee on FCT, Senate Smart Adeyemi, on Thursday donated N2m to the victims of the Nyanya bomb blast.

Adeyemi made the donation when he visited the victims receiving treatment at the National Hospital and the Asokoro District Hospital.

Adeyemi also visited the scene of the bomb explosion in Nyanya, Abuja.

Adeyemi, who was accompanied by Senators Philip Aduda and Emmanuel Bwacha, made a donation of N1m each to the victims receiving treatment in the two health facilities.

He directed management of the two hospitals to share the money to all the bomb blast victims receiving treatment to enable them to attend to the financial needs of their dependents.

“There are claims by families of victims that the hospital did not provide victims with food. I don’t know what you are doing about the feeding because majority of them are down-trodden,” he said.

Adeyemi said that the Senate Committee on FCT would ensure adequate budgetary allocation in the FCT 2014 Statutory budget for installation of Closed Circuit Television  in commercial centres.

“Now that we are still working on the FCT Statutory budget, we hope to make enough funding for security.

“We are going to ensure that  all parks and commercial centres of the city  have cameras that can capture the movement of people,” he said.
