In a meeting with the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, the governor expressed that the state has been providing temporary shelter for those affected by the explosion, enabling them to resume their lives.
Makinde emphasized that despite the challenges posed by the January 16, 2024, incident, the state and its affected residents will emerge stronger.
He also assured that his administration is actively working on a permanent solution to address the aftermath of the explosion.
“Yes, we have been battling with the fallout from the incident; we have been trying to give the affected people temporary accommodation so that they can continue their lives.
“Also, we have the people who got injured and need medical attention and the humanitarian side of it is that some children are supposed to be in school now. So, it is still very early days and we have to look at a long-term solution. We are also dealing with the security aspect of the incident.
“So, you need to keep encouraging us and supporting us where possible, as well as keep praying for us,” he said.
