“To us, this house is of great historical importance being the first residence of the former Nigeria’s first democratically-elected President Shehu Usman Aliyu Shagari.

“Its like a historical monument to the upcoming generation, therefore, we’ll renovate this house,” Aliyu stated.

While commiserating with the family of the late President over the inferno, Aliyu prayed Almighty Allah to prevent the recurrence of the disaster.

The governor was taken round the affected portion of the burnt house by some of the family members of the former President.
