Peter Obi Commiserates with Victims of Afor Nnobi Market Fire



Nnobi, Anambra State – Following the installation of a new Catholic Bishop in Mbaise, Imo State, Peter Obi traveled to Nnobi Community, Anambra State, to offer support to victims of a devastating fire at Afor Nnobi Market.

The fire incident, which occurred yesterday, destroyed several shops housing goods worth millions of naira. Fortunately, no lives were lost, but the emotional and financial impact on the affected traders is significant, particularly in the face of the nation’s harsh economic realities.

During his visit, Peter Obi expressed his sympathy and offered support to the victims. The scene was somber, with the remains of the burned shops highlighting the extent of the damage. The traders, now facing the loss of their livelihoods, are grappling with their new reality.

Peter Obi urged the government and voluntary agencies to provide immediate assistance to the victims. “The times are hard, and we must come together to support one another as we strive for a better future,” he stated.

In addition to his appeal, Peter Obi provided relief materials and financial support to help alleviate the victims’ immediate burdens. However, he emphasized the need for a coordinated and substantial response to fully address the scale of the destruction.

As the Nnobi community works to recover, Peter Obi’s visit and call for solidarity underscore the importance of collective effort in overcoming such setbacks. By showing compassion and unity, he believes the community can rebuild and move forward towards a brighter future.
