Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president and PDP presidential candidate, has given N50 million to flood victims at Kantin Kwari, a well-known textile market in Kano.
According to SEMA, a flood caused by a downpour destroyed materials worth over N200 million and affected about 200 shops.
Delivering a speech at the residence of Malam Ibrahim Shekarau who recently dumped the New Nigerian Peoples Party (NNPP), Atiku announced his donation to the victims, describing Kano as a renown commercial centre.
â€œKano is a renown commercial centre that has its marks in the economy. â€œI wish to use this opportunity to console victims of the unfortunate flood that was necessitated by heavy down pour.
â€œI also wish to use this opportunity to donate the sum of N50 million to those affected by the unfortunate situationâ€
