Ali Goni, another resident, said that the downpour was a blessing and a relief to the residents of the metropolis.

Goni said “No one was anticipating that rain will fall this month but I am glad it did. I spent at least N1000 on daily basis to buy ice block for the breaking of the Ramadan Fast.

“We normally go to Monday market to look for customers to help them carry their commodities or foodstuffs for N100. But since, the beginning of this fasting period which came with heat, I cannot go to the market.

“Sometimes, I go very early in the morning and close around 11 am when the sun is hot. Indeed this rainfall was a relief for me because the heat had reduced.,” he said. (NAN)
