Floods: Buhari sympathises with Pakistan, calls for global attention

By Ismaila Chafe, Abuja.

 

President Muhammadu Buhari has extended sympathies for the sea-like flooding of Pakistan, the worst natural disaster in the country’s history.

 

This is contained in a statement by the president’s spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, on Saturday in Abuja.

 

Floods have damaged half-a-million homes, affecting about 30 million people, killing more than 1,000 persons.

 

The floods have washed away hundreds of roads, bridges and other infrastructure.

 

According to the Nigerian leader, Pakistan and its population are in the thoughts and prayers of Nigerians, as they experience this humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.

 

Buhari appealed to the United Nations and aid Agencies to take urgent steps to assist the people without shelter and food as well as the millions who required urgent humanitarian relief.
