Speaking in Kaduna after handing over the money to the  traders at his Katsina road  office, Senator Sani said the need to fulfil the promise quickly was to help provide temporary succour  to cushion effect of the huge financial lost on the affected traders.

Senator Sani ,who was represented by the Special Adviser on Political Matters and ideology , Alhaji Ahmed Suleiman, urged the traders to be patient as efforts are being made to work out a better alternative for them .

“We  are aware that the one million naira donation cannot serve as compensation for the huge financial lost ,but we hope it help solve some family problems ,especially that all your  goods were burnt in the inferno” . He explained.

In his brief response after receiving the money , Chairman of Kaduna Railway Market Traders,  Alhaji Ibrahim Musa thanked the lawmaker and assured him of equitable sharing to all affected traders.

He however, reminded the lawmaker of his promise to see the management of railway market and Minister of Transport on behalf of the traders for an alternative trading place .
