By Mohammed Mohammed

President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday extended the sympathies of Nigerians  to the government and people of the United States (U.S) following devastating tornadoes ripping across 6 states, leaving destruction and death on their trail. 

Reacting to the catastrophe shown around the globe since Friday, President Buhari said: “The destruction of whole towns, flattening of houses, schools, hospitals, businesses and other social infrastructure on a scale never seen before is deeply saddening.” 

He said: “our deepest sympathies go to all those affected, as well as the government and the American people.” 

The President urged fellow citizens to join the rest of the world in praying for the deceased and the quick recovery of other victims and their families at this difficult time.

…Mourns Soun of Ogbomosoland

In another development, Buhari, has also condoled with the family of the Soun of Ogbomosoland, Oba Oladunni Oyewumi, Ajagungbade, on the demise of the highly revered traditional ruler earlier on Sunday.

The President commiserates with the Government and people of Oyo State and especially the indigenes of Ogbomosoland on the demise of the frontline traditional ruler whose reign of 48 years reinforced the town as a land of peace, accommodating and a bastion of history and tradition.

President Buhari also joins the Oyo State Council of Obas in mourning the first-class traditional ruler, who will forever be remembered for his counsel and commitment to the unity and harmony within their ranks.

He urges sons and daughters of Ogbomosoland to be consoled with the fact that Oba Oyewumi accentuated his reign with the development and progress of the community through enduring peace and extension of hands of fellowship to peoples of other lands.
