We have noticed with dismay, the campaign of calumny being orchestrated by some faceless and inconsequential political marauders in Niger State, regarding the Five Million Naira donation by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to victims of Kure Ultra modern market fire disaster.
Ordinarily, we wouldn’t have glorified this pedestrian cacophony with a response, but for purpose of posterity and the general public who may not be privy to the facts.
You may recall a pledge of Five Million Naira made by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to the victims of the said inferno when he visited the market on Wednesday, 9th January 2019. A pledge he has since redeemed and the cash handed over to the appropriate market officials.
An acknowledgment letter for the receipt of the said amount by the market officials has since been written and dispatched to all stakeholders, a confirmation that indeed they received the said amount.
Consequently, it is pertinent to note that, we believe in disaster as the will of God Almighty. However, the penchant disregard for the market’s master plan, which is being altered and disregarded by the APC led government cannot be exonerated from this disaster.
The market plan, which is the befitting legacy of the PDP has been altered so much that, pedestrians now struggle to have access to walkways talk more of emergency vehicles like the fire service.
We urge our desperate and unorganized political opponents to always crosscheck their facts before rushing to press, as era of wanton propaganda is long in the past.
PDP epitomizes empathy, love, care and comradeship. As such, we will never take pride in shortchanging the very people we seek to protect and represent.
