Zamfara Market Fire: APC Governors’ Forum donate N50 million to victims

By Abubakar Ahmed

The Progressive Governors’ Forum has donated N50 million to assist victims of the Tudun Wada Gusau market fire in Zamfara.

Chairman of the forum and Kebbi State Gov. Abubakar Bagudu presented the amount to Gov. Belli Matawalle on Monday in Gusau.

Bagudu led a high powered delegation to Zamfara to commiserate with the Government and people of the state over the recent fire outbreak that engulfed parts of the market.

He was accompanied by the governor of Yobe and Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Alhaji Mai-Mala Buni, and Gov. Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa.

According to Bagudu, it was planned earlier but could not take place due to dusty weather condition.

Meanwhile, he noted that the sad incident had affected the livelihoods of the victims.

He said the team was earlier in Katsina State where a similar unfortunate incident was recorded and prayed Allah (SWT) to recompense the victims with more wealth.

The governor acknowledged the efforts of Matawalle in ensuring the return of peace in the state, calling on the general public to be more careful in order to prevent a recurrence.

Responding, Matawalle commended the three governors for travelling by road to express their brotherliness and love showing their commitment to express that across party lines.

In particular, he appreciated the gesture which he noted his colleagues from the PDP have not done, assuring that it will be reciprocated.

“This is a strategy from the APC and Zamfara as a no man’s land will continue to welcome you and we will not care what negative things other people will say but we expect you to also extend our appreciation to our President Muhammadu Buhari,” he said.
