Shehu Sani Reacts As Tinubu Donates N50m To Katsina Fire Victims

Former Nigerian lawmaker, Shehu Sani has reacted to the N50m donation made by the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the victims of the Katsina Central Market fire disaster.

Naija News had earlier reported that the former Governor of Lagos State donated the sum of N50m to victims of the fire incident on Wednesday.

Tinubu visited the scene of the incident with the Katsina state governor, Aminu Bello Masari, to sympathise with the victims who lost goods and properties to the inferno.

While reacting to Tinubu’s donation in a tweet on Thursday night, Shehu Sani asked the Northern Governors to reciprocate when there is a market fire incident in the Southern region of the country.

He wrote: “Dear Northern Governors, when there’s Market fire incidence in the South please reciprocate.”

Meanwhile, an explosion on Wednesday rocked Ushafa community, Abuja, near the Department of State Service (DSS) institute and around the exit pipe of the only dam supplying water to the entire FCT residence.

It was gathered that the explosion shook houses in the community to their foundations, especially those within the Usuma Dam quarters and the DSS institute within the axis.

Some farmers in the community had revealed that the explosion came from the quarry site around the only radio station in the area, Jordan FM.

They claimed that the quarry had started full operations despite petitions and queries from different quarters regarding their alleged illegal mining and the danger such will pose to the entire community.

It was gathered that the DSS had kicked against the quarry pointing out that the constant blasting of rocks and extreme noise within the area was a security threat.

The FCT Water Board had also raised the alarm over the impact of the quarry located just a few meters away from the lower part of the Dam that could trigger unimaginable disaster.

Lower Usuma Dam supplies water to FCT homes, including the presidency.

A source at the DSS institute told DailyPost that the activities of the quarry threatens the existence of the institute and poses a general security threat to the FCT due to the constant blasting that would be coming from there.
