President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday extended sympathies for the sea-like flooding of Pakistan, the worst natural disaster in the country’s history.
According to a statement by Presidential Spokesperson, Garba Shehu, President Buhari stated that “floods have damaged half-a-million homes, affecting about 30 million people, killing above 1,000. The floods have washed away hundreds of roads, bridges and other infrastructure.
“President Buhari says Pakistan and its population are in the thoughts and prayers of Nigerians as they confront this humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.
“He appeal to the United Nations and other Aid Agencies to take urgent steps to assist people without shelter and food as well as the millions who require urgent humanitarian relief.”
