Abdullahi Ganduje Governor of Kano state has donated N18.5 million to 185 indigenes victims of the Shasha market crisis in Ibadan.
Alhaji Garba Mohammed, Kano State Commissioner for Information, who led the state government delegation, gave each of the victims N100,000 on Tuesday in Ibadan.
“We have about 185 people who are indigenes of Kano, affected by this unfortunate incident. We have made our calculations that each and everyone of them will get a N100,000.
He said they will try to reach out to those that have left Ibadan to Kano to discuss with them to give them their money.
“Those of them who have gone to Kano, we will also see and discuss with the governor. We will identify them in Kano and give them the money,” he said.
“State governors should be able to share their experiences. Our governors were in Ibadan and Oyo. I am also happy that they are having another security meeting in Ogun State.
He also urged the Governors in the South and North to try to continue sharing valuables to the victims of the incident.
“So, I think governors from the Southern and Northern part of the country should try as much as possible to ensure that they continue to meet, share experiences.
“And harmonise whatever situation they are having in their respective states in terms of security challenges,” he said.
He called on Nigerians to embrace peaceful coexistence, urging them to always tolerate each other.
“The support is a continuous process because we are still going to continue tomorrow. Some of them have left Ibadan for Kano. Many of them don’t even have any money with them,” he said.
The beneficiaries thanked the state government for coming to their aid.
