“President Muhammadu Buhari is saddened by gruesome vehicle accident in Mgbowu, Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State, in which scores of people died, most of them pupils.

 

President condoles with families and kith and kin of the dead, praying that God grant them succour, and spare country of such tragedy in future.

“He also commiserates with the Catholic Church of Awgu, which runs Presentation Nursery and Primary that the pupils attended, and the Enugu State government.
