Today, Monday, January 13, 2020, I visited the Spare Parts Market Mgbuka, Obosi to ascertain first hand the level of damage the inferno that raised down the market caused.
I was emotionally touched by the mayhem that befell occupants of the market at the start of the new year. I expressed my sympathies to those whose goods were consumed in the fire incident, and also observed a minute silence for the life that was lost in the incident.
I promised to bring the incident to the notice of relevant agencies especially National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, and solicit their support in providing relief to ameliorate the plights of victims of the inferno that consumed goods worth billions of Naira.
I thanked the Anambra State Government for their show of support to the victims, and hope that the Government will come up with a plan to assist victims of the incident.
It is true that no amount of financial assistance may be enough to make up for the lost goods, regardless, I will extend my financial support to the victims, as I am already in talks with the leadership of the market who are compiling names of victims. I pray that the token of my support when received by the victims shall bear large fruits, enough to enable them bounce back better than they were before the incident, while adding in my prayers that such incident would never happen again.
