The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has expressed deep shock and condolences over the unfortunate tanker fire that ravaged parts of Onitsha Metropolis Wednesday afternoon.
In a press statement issued in Abuja this evening by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Barrister Prophet Tex Okechukwu, the party was pained by the loss of lives and properties that trailed the sad incident.
It condoled with the families of those that lost their properties and dear ones in the inferno and prayed God to console them.
APGA commended the Anambra State Government for its prompt response to the incident and expressed optimism that the government would come to the aid of those adversely affected by the fire.
It advised the government to take stringent measures to forestall a recurrence, but condemned the activities of armchair critics who had latched on the incident to cause disaffection among the citizenry.
It prayed God to grant the souls of those that died repose in heaven.
