Following the building collapse that killed and injured many school pupils at Itafaaji in Lagos state, President Muhammadu Buhari, Thursday charged the state’s governor, Akinwunmi Ambode to do everything within his power to avoid a repetition of such catastrophic accident in the state. In a statement disclosed by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Buhari, sympathized with the parents and relations of the deceased and wished them God’s comfort. He also wished the injured speedy and complete recovery.
Mr President equally commiserated with the government and good people of Lagos State, and pledges assistance of the Federal Government as may be required by the state.
“It touches one to lose precious lives in any kind of mishap, particularly those so young and tender. May God grant everyone affected by this sad incident fortitude and succour,” the President said. He charges the Lagos State government to do all that is needful, so that such tragic developments do not recur in future.
