Governor Babatunde Fashola has paid a visit to the
popular Balogun market in the state following a fire
incident on Monday, January 12. »
Fashola promised to help rebuild the market while
urging the traders to insure their businesses so they
could be protected in such situations.
“We want to know what the estimate of losses are. You
have to liaise with the market leaders. We will help you.
This will also apply to all the plazas affected. It is
impossible for us to count the number of people while
we are here,” the governor said.
“The Commissioner for Special Duties is here, he will
liaise with all the people and the plazas affected to
have a clear view of the type of businesses they do and
the estimate and we assure you that we will help you,”
he added.
“I appeal to all of you who do businesses to take up
insurance for your businesses. The premium charged is
not much, insurance company will have come to your
aid at this period. Market men and women should sit
down and adopt a policy for the future. The insurance
companies also must raise their own game,” Fashola
said.
The inferno is said to have destroyed four houses, five
plazas and a bank building in the market.
