Mr Hanga, whose district covers 15 local government areas, said the donation was in response to frequent demands for assistance for burial materials from his constituents.

One of Mr Hanga’s social media aides, Dawuud Auwal, announced the donations.

“The district head of Tarauni and head of the committee overseeing the graveyard in Kano, Ado Kurawa, has supervised the 500,000 clay pots and N500,000 white plain cloths (likkafani) donated by Senator Rufai Hanga for distribution to the graveyard in Kano Central District. After the supervision he directed for the distribution”, Mr Auwal said.

Clay pots and white cloths are used by Muslims for enshrouding corpses. A male corpse requires three wraps, while a female corpse requires five wraps to be covered properly.

“We are used to these frequent requests from people soliciting money to buy white cloths and clay pots. Some have requested vehicles for transporting the dead,” Mr Auwal said.
