From Ayodele Samuel, Lagos.
The Lagos state chapter of Peoples Democratic Party PDP has empathised with the victims of the fire outbreak at the popular Balogun market on lagos Island, warning the Lagos state government against taking over of razed market.
The party promising to extend her best support to give succour to the victims, called for an immediate thorough probe into the persistent but incredible fire outbreaks at markets, not particularly in the hands of investors called Market Developers. The party in a statement signed by its Publicity secretary, Gani Taofik went further to chide governor Fashola who it said chose to visit the burnt market only to make political statements rather than say specifically his immediate realisable support for the victims.
The party counsels that the Lagos State government should desist from propagandist’s governance and give true, honest, progressive governance to lagosians, at least for the last four months of this administration. It hinged this assertion on the inability of the much touted Lagos State Fire Service to be prompt and effective at reducing the fire disasters across the state, especially in the last One week.
The PDP cautioned the governor not to take over the burnt property but compassionately support the market men and women to continue business.
