US Tornadoes: Buhari condoles American govt over deaths, destruction of whole towns
President Muhammadu Buhari has sent out a message to the United States of America following devastating tornadoes rocking the country.
The Nigerian leader extended the sympathies of the Nigerian government to the US and its people over the sad development that has caused deaths and destruction across six states.
A brief statement signed by Femi Adesina, the President’s spokesman, said that Buhari was reacting to the catastrophe being televised around the globe since Friday.
Buhari said, “the destruction of whole towns, flattening of houses, schools, hospitals, businesses and other social infrastructure on a scale never seen before was deeply saddening.”
He said, “our deepest sympathies go to all those affected, as well as the government and the American people.”
The President called on Nigerians to join the rest of the world in praying for the US.
