Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, on Wednesday doled out N50,000 million to victims of the Katsina Central Market fire.

Tinubu had visited the market to condole with the traders who lost properties worth billions of naira.

He was at the market with the Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari.

Tinubu urged that normal market activities should continue at the market despite the tragedy.

According to Tinubu, the reason for the visit was to commiserate with the traders who lost properties as well as Governor Masari.

The former governor called for unity among Nigerians, saying that Nigerians must be their brother’s keeper.

Also, President Muhammadu Buhari had on Tuesday said his government would work with Katsina and Zamfara to assist traders affected by fire.

Malam Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant on Media, said Buhari’s message was delivered to the governors of the two states by a Federal Government delegation.

The delegation was led by Abubakar Malami, the Attorney General of the Federation and the Minister of Justice.

The delegation visited Katsina and Gusau, the capitals of the two states.

Buhari expressed concern at the destruction of billions of Naira worth of goods and property in the inferno.

He noted that the unfortunate fire incidents came at a time when the effects of COVID 19 on economies around the world had taken a toll on virtually all businesses.

He also acknowledged that many of the traders had stocked wares in anticipation of the boom in sales in the period of the upcoming Ramadan and the Sallah festival that follows.



  1. Earlier this year, 2021, there were reports of a massive fire incident at the Ile-Ife central (new) market, sadly there has been no report that Tinubu either visited the scene or commiserated with the Oni of Ife till today. What about the fire incident at Onitsha market? Did he visit there or donate anything towards alleviating the losses incurred?

    • Well put! He doesn’t care about the Yorubas. The clown thinks that he can bribe the Hausas to vote for him. He is too dumb and clueless to see what is going on. I heard that he is considering picking Thug MC Oluomo as his running mate. Useless thief.

  2. Tinubu didn’t donate any dime for Shasha market fire but here we are. Just to please Buhari for support in 2023. He will be disappointed. If he cannot stand for Yoruba now with all the challenges in the region, how can he expect their vote? We are watching.

    • Tinubu will surely fail and be disgraced. He’s living in another planet and not Nigeria by the way he’s going about this his presidential ambition. Hypocrite!

  3. How much did he donate to Lekki shooting victims and countless markets that got burnt in the South? 2023 my foot. Keep deceiving yourself. Last time it was NWIKE who donated 500 million naira Rivers state money to a roadside market in Sokoto state that got burnt. All for 2023. And people are surprisingly keeping quiet.

    • Tony, you know quite well that Tinubu is a worthless person. He has no credibility and integrity. I hope the EFCC go after him. He will never be the President of Nigeria.
