He said; “You came here to commiserate with us over the explosion. I am particularly grateful because the President has reached out to me, you also have reached out to me but my own party candidate (Atiku), not even a call or a text message.
“I am saying this openly because our leaders should know that they need to have time for politics and humanity too.”
The governor said investigation to fully unravel the mystery behind the incident is currently ongoing.
“Investigations are still going on, it was an issue of illegal miners storing explosive devices in an environment where they should not be kept,” he added.
