Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, to berate Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State over the fire accident at the Ochanja market , the second biggest market in Onitsha.

Naija News had reported earlier that the inferno started when the tanker spilled its product and subsequently ignited the fire outbreak.
Reacting to the tragic incident in a statement on Wednesday evening, Stella Oduah, the senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District at the
Nigerian Senate , commiserated with those who lost properties and their loved ones in the fire accident.

Senator Oduah berated the inability of the Anambra State government led by Governor Willie Obiano to provide fire service stations in the market in case of such emergencies, despite the heavy taxes imposed on traders on a daily basis.

The Anambra North lawmaker called on the state government to ensure that “ preventable incidents like this never rear their ugly heads again.”
”The pictures and video clips of goods and properties burning to ashes with no help in sight is not only disheartening but completely unacceptable and I call on all those collecting funds in the form of various levies from these poor traders to step up their game so as to avert such avoidable disasters in the future, ” the senator said.
Like Senator Oduah, Nigerians also berated Governor Obiano over the incident with some calling on him to resign for what they described as negligence and incompetence.
Naija News captured some of the reactions below…

No fire fighters intervened until the Delta state govt came to the rescue .
Meanwhile
@innosonvehicles have fire fighting trucks in ANAMBRA , so why tf can’t ANAMBRA state govt get one from them, only to get help from the neigbouring state.
Disgrace Obiano ❌

Dear Anambra Governor, Willie Obiano, someone will pay dearly for the avoidable deaths that occurred today in #Onitsha .

We have tolerated your irresponsible leadership in Anambra for far too long.

A cluster city like Onitsha with plenty of markets everywhere, yet no Fire Service.
This is what I've been clamouring years, we don't have a government in Anambra State. Willie Obiano is only concern with his showbiz and nothing else.

Innoson( IVM) produces firefighting trucks in Anambra but Anambra State government doesn’t have a firefighting truck.
The inferno in Onitsha started and ended without any intervention. #PrayForOnitsha
Obiano is a failure.
