The Coalition for Good Governance and Economic Justice in Africa has commiserated with the Government and people of Kano State over an early morning fire that gutted the multi-billion Naira Singer Market, where goods and cash estimated at N3 Billion were destroyed.

The Coalition, in a statement by its Media Coordinator, Mr. Patrick Omene said, this is most unfortunate to the economy of Kano State, more so coming after Kurmi market, the oldest market in Kano was destroyed by fire and the last month inferno at the furniture section of Abubakar Rimi market.

The numerous inferno in Kano state no doubt, came with devastating losses in its wake with tales of pain, anguish and hopelessness at a time the economy is experiencing a global downturn, Omene observed.

According to Omene, We share in the pains of the victims of these unfortunate incidents. We also commiserate with Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at these trying times just as we commend Mr. Governor for the plans to inject the sum of N2bn in the Microfinance banks to establish an enabling environment for Small and Medium Enterprises to grow and operate in the state”.

The right group said, We wants to thank the Federal Government for making plans to alleviate the sufferings of the victims and other well-meaning Nigerians for their support and understanding.
