The senator representing Sokoto North Senatoral district and Chairman of the Senate Committee Anti Corruption, Senator Aliyu Magatakarda Wamakko, has commiserated with the victims of Kara market fire disaster, who lost assorted properties believed to be worth billions  of naira.

He commiserated with the victims of the disaster, as well as admonished them to regard it as the unavoidable will of the Almighty Allah.
He beseeched Allah to replenish the losses incurred by the myriad of affected traders, most of whom had lost their life savings.


Wamakko further expressed shock and sadness that the tragedy struck at a time when citizens were already experiencing some formidable socioeconomic hard times.


“I am therefore praying the Almighty Allah to prevent the recurrence of such obnoxious tragedies, as well as make ways for the victims to bounce back with their hitherto bustling trading and commercial activities in the market.
“On behalf of myself, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and all its supporters. I am hereby commiserating with all the victims and we are sharing your unexplainable griefs,”he averred.


In his remark, the Secretary, Elders committee of the grains sellers association of the market, Alhaji Bello Bizo thanked Senator Wamakkko for the invaluable visit and prayed Allah to reward him abundantly .


One of the traders interviewed during the visit, explained that about three hundred and sixty shops were affected by the fire incident.
