Rainstorm: Buhari visits Katsina Friday

Agaju Madugba, Katsina

President Muhammadu Buhari is expected in Katsina State, on Friday, on a one-day visit to commiserate with and  condole victims and families of those who lost their lives  during the recent rainstorm in the area.

A press statement by Masari’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Abdu Labaran Malumfashi, noted that although the Governor had visited the affected areas at the wake of the incident, “President Buhari feels it is necessary for him to personally visit the affected places and meet the people, to extend his commiserations and condolences.

“The Governor therefore requests the people to turn out en masse to welcome the President in the best tradition of Peace and Heritage for which Katsina State is famed.”

The Katsina State Emergency Management Agency confirmed six persons killed and several others injured during the rainstorm in the Katsina metropolis and outskirts, on May 17.

Apart from the dead, the storm which heralded the first rainfall in the year in Katsina, also destroyed a number of buildings especially at Kukah Gashua, Modoji, Shinkafi and Ambassador areas as well as at the Army Barracks on Jibia road and the Air  Force Base at the Makera surbub.
