Nnewi Fire: Peter Obi Condoles Victims’ Families

The former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi has condoled with the families of victims of Thursday’s fire incidence at Nnewi.

Describing the incidence as “tragic and regrettable”, Obi who said he was downcast, prayed to God to grant repose to the dead and courage to those they left behind to bear the loss with equanimity.

While submitting that humans cannot question God in all matters, including birth and death, Obi however advised the people to be vigilant at all times and observe safety guides in order to avoid similar occurrence in future.

Obi expressed solidarity with the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, the Igwe mof Nnewi and the entire Nnewi people, especially the Chicason Group over the incidence.

“Nnewi is directly affected by the unfortunate incidence, we must show solidarity with them, bearing in mind that, as Donne John said, ‘Any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind.’’

Describing 2015 as not so good for Anambra State in terms of human tragidy of shocking proportion, including, Obi said, the accident that happened at Umuchu, the one at Nanka, the fire outbreak in several markets, Obi prayed to God to guide and guard the State in 2016 so as not to witness such gory scenes again.
