THE Kano office of DAAR Communications Plc, owner of AIT/Raypower,  was, on Friday, gutted by fire, with equipment worth millions of naira destroyed.

The conflagration, which lasted for over three hours, however,  claimed no life and nobody was injured while it lasted.

Head of AIT in Kano, Alhaji Abdullahi Addy, who described the incident as sad and pathetic, said the fire started around 8.20a.m when the station was on transmission, saying “we just saw smoke from our studio, but it only affected the office at the sixth floor of the building.”

According to him, the incident was unfortunate, especially as political activities were gaining momentum all over the country,  saying  that the station will bounce back with more determination to please its numerous listeners and viewers in no time.

“We, however, thank God that this fire did not kill anybody and nobody was injured,” he stated.

Speaking during his sympathy call to the station, the former governor of Kano State, Senator Kabir Gaya, described the incident as unfortunate.

“We have been enjoying the programmes of AIT in Kano State and have benefitted a lot from the coverage that AIT is giving to us,” the senator stated.

Gaya, a member of the All Nigeria peoples Party (ANPP) in the National Assembly,  said “I commiserate with the leaders of the corporation for the loss and I want to tell the manager that every disappointment is a blessing,” praying Allah to give multiple blessing to the station.

“We, however, wish this incident will not deter you from re-establishing another station,” Gaya said.

He appealled to the management of the media outfit not to delay in coming back on air even through a mobile station pending the time repairs  are carried out.

It's a pity, but are they trying to say that politicians have something to do with the fire? Oh God help our country and bless the owner of AIT richly so that he will be back to speak the truth, i love that station because they speak the truth more than NTA

Too bad, but thank God for no life lost.
Please advise these corporate business mogul to learn from past experience and be proactive by reducing cost of incident through installation of smoke and fire detectors in their facilities. Smoke and fire detector is very cheap compare to cost of material and facility damages incured in such incident and with smoke or fire detector theier could only be fire incident if somebody somewhere is not doing his/her work.
Please let's learn to be proactive always instead of beeing reactive.
God be with the management and staff of DAAR communications.

What a terrible and irresponsible post is this? Why have u chosen 2 politiking with a sensitive issue as this? is it a sin 2 compaign for whoever one wishes? or is Babangida not a Nigerian? Pls u should av human feelings and address issues maturely in future
