President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled victims of the fire incidents in Sabon Gari Market, Kano State and Birnin Kebbi Central Market, Kebbi State.
Fire ravaged the two markets on Saturday.
In a statement by senior special assistant, Garba Shehu, President Buhari commiserated with the government and people of the two states, particularly those who incurred losses.
President Buhari said he shared in the pain of the victims knowing that the two fire incidents had created major setbacks for all those that had business outfits in the markets, thereby affecting the livelihood of their families and setting back economic activities in the states.
The President advised the Kano and Kebbi State Government to find out the immediate and remote causes of the fire disasters in the states in order to forestall future occurrences.
Apart from investigations, President Buhari also called for strict adherence to precautionary standards in buildings and operations in all markets to avoid fire out breaks.
