President Buhari has commiserated with the president of the United states of America, Joe Binden Jnr over the unfortunate turnout of events that cost the life of many over the weekend and Sunday.
It was reported that four tornadoes tore through the Kentucky with the primary tornado travelling more than 227 miles (365km) across the state. Arkansas, Missouri and Tennessee were also hit by the tornadoes, but Kentucky took the most hit, according to the governor Andy Beshear who reported on Sunday saying;
“Earlier this morning at about 5am we were pretty sure that we would lose over 50 Kentuckians. I am now certain that that number is north of 70, it may in fact end up exceeding 100 before the day is done.”
However through Garba Shehu, his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity sent his condolences and goodwill message to president, said that the event which led to destruction of several houses, schools, hospitals, businesses and other social infrastructure is really unfortunate one. 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. The tornado is described as the deadliest to have ever hit Kentucky stat or the US in general.
