Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Wednesday, has said his government would donate N500 million for the rebuilding of a market that was destroyed by fire in Sokoto State.
Governor Wike visited the scene of the fire incident barely 24 hours after the fire incident which happened on Tuesday.
Wike was said to have expressed shock and dismay over the incident.
The Rivers governor said part of the N500 million was to support the victims of the fire incident.
He said whatever affected Sokoto State was of concern to Rivers State, adding that his administration would ensure the market was reconstructed and made functional again.
Mr Tambuwal, while conducting the Rivers governor around the fire scene, said 60 per cent of the 16,000 shops in the market have been destroyed by the fire.
