The Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP in the recently held general elections, Mr. Peter Obi has commiserated with the government and people of Anambra and Lagos States over the deaths registered in the state on Wednesday.
While Anambra lost seven persons to a tanker crash, Lagos lost unspecified number children and registered over 100 casualties in a collapsed school building.
In a press release signed by the media aide of the former governor, Mr Valentine Obienyem, Obi offered his condolences to the families of those affected in both accidents.
Obi said, “The tragic incidents, like the recent crash of an Ethiopian Aircraft, should elicit the compassion and concern of everyone, because “we are all part of humanity”.
He expressed worry at the continued incidence of collapsed buildings across the country; and called on relevant agencies and organizations to double their efforts towards seeking a final solution to the menace.
Concluding, Mr. Obi prayed the Almighty God to grant the souls of the dead eternal repose, urging public authorities at all tiers to take the issue of mass housing seriously to avoid Nigerian citizens taking up accommodation in uncompleted buildings.Source:
