KanyiDaily had reported how an early morning fire gutted the Katsina Central market on Monday, where over a 100 shops were razed with goods worth millions of naira destroyed.
Tinubu visited the affected traders at the ravaged market on Wednesday, along with Governor Aminu Bello Masari; his Deputy, Mannir Yakubu and the Secretary to the State Government, Mustapha Inuwa.
While commiserating with victims of the fire incident, the APC leader announced the donation of N50 million and called for the reopening of the market to enable traders resume commercial activities.
He said the immediate reopening of the market would enable the victims to ascertain the number of properties lost and kickstart their means of livelihoods.
“I am here to commiserate with the governor and the people of Katsina State, especially men and women who are affected by the fire. I have donated N50 million to the affected traders. Whatever affect the people of Katsina State affect me too and that is why I am here.
“We will continue to promote unity and collaboration among members of communities in our country. We cannot displace ourselves, but unite ourselves to promote peace and stability,” he said.
Tinubu further asked residents of the state and Nigerians in general, to shun violence and acts that are capable of disrupting peace and stability of the country, noting that no meaningful development could be achieved in an atmosphere of rancour.
