Reacting to the development, Hon. Akwaji stated that "it is very frustrating to have people set up their businesses to cater for the welfare of their families, and all of a sudden, you realize that everything you have laboured and set up a business is razed down by fire outbreak"

He called to the Acting Director General of the State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA to join him for on the spot assessment of the incidence.

While advising shop owners to think of proper precautionary measures to avert future fire outbreaks, he added that "as Africans, we are engrossed in curative measures other than the acceptable preventive measures in dealing or handling our challenges.

He urged relevant authorities to always regulate electricity voltage to prevent continuous fire outbreak.
