Vice Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi, has expressed concern over Saturday night’s fire incident at the popular Amawbia Junction in Amawbia, Awka, Anambra State.

Speaking at the scene on Sunday, Obi said he was saddened when he got the news and that his thoughts went straight to all those affected by the inferno, “especially the families of the dead ones.” He prayed for the repose of their souls.

Though he expressed shock at the extent of the destruction, but he urged those affected not to lose hope as he assured them that “when, by the grace of God, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar becomes President, the economy will improve and contingency measures put in place to ensure that victims of such accidents do not suffer so much.”

Speaking further, Chief Joe-Martin Uzodike, who represented Obi, appealed to Nigerians to disregard the news that Mr. Obi was attacked in Abuja, saying that nothing of such happened while Obi was in the places mentioned.
