The Corporate Affairs Manager of the market, Mr Innocent Amaechina, made the clarification in a statement made available to journalist .
” Our attention has been drawn to a news report in an online media platform titled Fire Guts Abuja Building Materials Market, Dei dei. We wish to clarify that though there was a fire incident on a particular shop arising from a generating set, it was put out immediately,“ he said.
He assured stakeholders, especially customers and business partners of the market that the market was as safe as ever.
“In fact, the incident was so insignificant that just the immediate neighbors noticed that there was a fire. It therefore cannot be reported as fire gutting the market or even a section of it as was captured by the media. In view of the times we are in, doing so in our estimation amounts to scaremongering,” he said.
Amaechina, reassured traders and the general public of commitment of Abuja Markets Management to deliver excellent facility management services. Abuja Markets Management Ltd are the managers of Dei dei Building Materials Market, among other markets in the FCT.
