    And yes it is GEJ’s fault…you see we were promised electricity and of course because they broke their promises, we had to resort to generating our own power hence the need to buy generators, and of course your issues with the markers further resulted in the need to store fuel and diesel, so you see this fire is tracable.. Systematic breakdown of Nigeria.. one contractor will soon be smiling to the banks… Ahhhh what a place to call home, iya yii kpo….

    Dear Lord, please comfort the bereaved and sustain hope in those who lost materially in Jesus name.
    Sorry people, it is not GEJ’s fault. It is the fault of governance that takes so much from poor traders as tax- in all manners- without providing basic amenities for them to contain disasters like this. Even if Jonah had ‘performed’ to a level we can applaud him on power supply, it wont have been enough to completely assure power 100% and so people will still run gen and by extension, store fuel.
    Pure failure of governance and it wrankles if one knows how much these traders cough out per day to miscreants who are allowed to bisiege them by government of the day- state and LG.

    Hope also that this is not some wicked act in the quest to build a new market by displacing present owners. May God help/judge!
