While flagging off the project on Wednesday, the governor said that Akesan market had been in existence for 400 years.

He added that “no one in recent history could have anticipated that something like this would happen.”⁣

“What that means is that no one even planned for a fire. So, one of the things we are doing now is to put things in place to make sure that should there be a fire in the future it will not be as devastating as this last one was.⁣"
