Former Chief of Army Staff, His Excellency Amb Tukur Yusufu Buratai CFR, has sympathised with victims, families and the Borno State Government over the fire incident that razed the popular Maiduguri Monday Market on Sunday morning.
This was contained in a statement issued by the immediate past Nigerian Ambassador to the Republic of Benin, to the press on Monday in Abuja.
He praised Governor Babagana Zulum for his quick response to the disaster, which included a N1 billion donation to victims.
He also urged well-meaning and philanthropic Nigerians at home and abroad to contribute generously to the victims.
“I share your pain at this trying moment.
“May Almighty Allah restore to all the victims their losses and the market be reconstructed within a very short time to enable business activities to resume,” he said.
