Mr Buba, 50, was reported to have developed limb complications from the solidarity walk he undertook to celebrate the first term victory of the president and called on the government and others to come to his aid.
The governor’s media aide Ismaila Misilli noted in a statement that Buba was taken to the Government House clinic for diagnosis from where he was referred to a private orthopaedic hospital where he was examined and placed on medication.
He later met with the governor at the Gombe governor’s lodge in Abuja.
“By embarking on that solidarity trek, Dahiru Buba had shown patriotism and support, he should therefore be appreciated and encouraged.”
He added that the cash gift was also to enable the driver purchase a house within his locality since he has yet to own one.
