Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq has commiserated with the families of the students who died in an auto crash in Yauri, Kebbi State, on Saturday, describing the incident as devastating.
He also commiserated with the families of 20 people who died in another accident along Bode-Saadu-Jebba expressway, saying the development was sad.
The governor’s condolence message was contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Rafiu Ajakaye on Saturday.
“The Governor mourns with the parents and families of all those affected in these accidents. He prays the Almighty God to repose their souls and comfort the families they left behind. It was indeed a very sad day,” he said in a statement.
“He also prays for speedy recovery for those injured. The government, meanwhile, is following up with every detail concerning the students who were injured in the Yauri accident.
“A government delegation, which comprises a Director and medical doctors, has been despatched with an ambulance to visit the students in (Yauri) Kebbi and the Teaching Hospital Sokoto where the three students who sustained serious injuries have been taken to for proper care. Another delegation will visit the two families who lost their children to share in their grief.
“The Governor especially commends the governments of Kebbi and Sokoto States for their prompt responses to the distress calls of the Kwara State Government. This is inspiring and (again) speaks to the general good nature of the people of Nigeria. He specifically commends the Secretaries to the Governments of Kebbi (Alhaji Babale Umar Yauri) and Sokoto States (Alhaji Saidu Umaru) for personally taking over the cases of the students and ensuring they were properly attended to. The people and government of Kwara State are indeed very grateful for this kind gesture.”
