President Muhammadu Buhari has commiserated with families of those who died, sustained injuries, and were affected in the building collapse in the Ebute Metta area of Lagos State.

The President, in a statement made available by the Special Adviser to the President, Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, expressed regret at the tragic incident, saluting the courage and determination of the first responders, national and sub-national emergency agencies in the state.

Buhari said this while commending compassionate Nigerians whose immediate action in the aftermath of the collapse of the three-storey building led to the rescue of several persons, including many children.

The president noted that the frequency of building collapses in the country has become increasingly embarrassing, urging the relevant state authorities to work closely with professional bodies to put a halt to these unfortunate but preventable incidents.

President Buhari wished those injured a speedy recovery and prayed for divine assistance in the ongoing search and rescue operations.
