Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, has expressed worry over the inferno that destroyed part of the Jos Central Mosque.
The governor also sympathised with second hand furniture sellers whose shops and property were destroyed in the inferno.
Represented by the Commissioner of Information and Communications, Mallam Nazif Ahmad, the governor said “it is sympathetic because wherever there is an incident like this the people suffer. We have seen the level of loss and the damage, we also know the predicament in which those concerned are into. The government is mindful of the situation that we are in and will certainly come to their aid.”
The commissioner said as part of measures by the government to avert a reoccurrence, the department of enlightenment under his ministry will embark on a campaign to educate the people particularly children and women on the dangers of handling electrical appliances.
It would be recalled that a fire outbreak had razed the female section of the Jos Central Mosque, as well as some shops and property.
The commissioner was accompanied by the Deputy Chief of Staff to the Governor, Barrister Yusuf Gambo Hawaja, and other top government functionaries.
