President Muhammadu Buhari has sympathized with victims of the fire incidents in Sabon Gari Market, Kano and Birnin Kebbi Central Market, Kebbi State.

Both incidents occurred on Saturday.
The president also commiserated with the government and people of the two states, particularly those who incurred losses.

In a statement signed by his spokesperson, Garba Shehu, on Saturday, Mr. Buhari said he “shares in the pain of the victims knowing that the two fire incidents had created major setbacks for all those that had business outfits in the markets, thereby affecting the livelihood of their families and setting back economic activities in the states”. 

The President advised the Kano and Kebbi State Governments to investigate the immediate and remote causes of the fire disasters in the states in order to forestall future occurrences.

“Apart from investigations, President Buhari also calls for strict adherence to precautionary standards in buildings and operations of all markets to avoid fire out breaks. 

“He prays that the Almighty God will comfort and replenish all those that incurred losses in the incidents,” the statement said.

    Most Bomb blast in motor Park sabon gari, most shops burnt in kano sabon gari, most arrest of females termed as prostitute sabon gari. Biafrans u need to wake up and get United. The only endangered speci in Nigeria today are the biafrans even when their offence is not as grievous as that of the fulani herdsmen, they are still seen as a threat. Is it because of their interest in self determination?

    The people that probably suffered more lost in the fire outbreak are the Igbo traders. That is is probably another sabotage by the Hausa people to frustrate the Igbos. My advice is simple. Leave the North for the Northerners and let us see how they will survival economically without the Igbo businesses providing goods and services.
