Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State yesterday met with victims of the Wednesday bomb blasts.
While at the hospital, he ordered that they should be treated free of charge and promised to redesign and invest in the affected market to make it safe.
Ganduje, who visited the Aminu Kano Specialist Hospital, Murtala Muhammed Specialist Hospital and Muhammadu Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hospital, where victims of the bomb blasts are being treated directed the hospital authorities to ensure that they are given the best.
He said: “This is yet another unfortunate incident. We have to continue praying to Allah to assist us”.
While speaking to journalists at the market, where the twin bombs went off, he said government is still trying to identify those who lost their lives so as to offer something to their families.
The governor added that the market is very important to Kano State government and the people because thousands of youths earn their daily income at the market. 
 “Government will invest in the market to ensure that those operating there are safe. We will redesign it in such a way that there will be a checkpoint and there will be surveillance to check anybody that is coming to the market,” he said.
He urged operators of the market to continue to be vigilant and cooperate with security agencies, saying they will do everything possible to protect both lives and property. “As government and members of the public, we should be observant and learn from the situation.  We will continue in our efforts at federal, state and the local government levels to see to the end of this insurgency”, the governor said.
Meanwhile, 60 victims of the bomb blasts are still on admission in three of the state’s hospitals: Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital and Muhammadu Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hospitals.  According to the Chief Medical Director of the AKTH, Dr. Sani Mijinyawa, out of the 56 injured persons brought to the hospital, only 17 of them are still on admission.
 He said while two of the patients died, the others were treated as outpatients and discharged. At MMH, 30 people are still on admission due to the degree of injuries they sustained in the blasts while 13 others are still being treated at MAW SH.
