He described the inferno as an act of God, saying the visit by the forum was arranged since the incident took place but that circumstances prevented them from making it then.

While announcing the donation of N100 million to the traders, Tambuwal cautioned politicians against using the fire incident to advance their political interests .

Responding, Gov. Bello Matawalle, thanked the PDP governors for the visit saying it was timely.
