Traders at Kenyatta Market, Enugu, whose shops were gutted by fire last week, paid a Thank-you visit to Enugu State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi. They prayed that he would be victorious in the coming election.
The jubilant traders, accompanied by the Chairman of Kenyatta Market Traders Association, Hon. Chinweuba Igwesi and secretary, Dons Okeke, expressed gratitude to God and Ugwuanyi for wiping their tears through offering them financial assistance to re-establish their businesses.
Speaking to newsmen amid excitement, Lady Chidiebere Ozoude said: “we are really happy that we are back to life, after our shops got burnt. We have to thank God and the governor who God used to wipe away our tears and return us back to life”.
It would be recalled that when the inferno occurred, Ugwuanyi visited the victims, empathised with them and donated N1m to each of the affected traders to ameliorate their loss.
The governor thanked God that no life was lost and told the victims that his administration was deeply concerned about the challenges they encountered as a result of the inferno, reassuring that his administration would not abandon them in their time of need.
