Saraki commiserates with Saudi Arabia over Mecca crane collapse
The President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, has commiserated with the Saudi Arabian authorities and the Muslim Ummah over death of 107 people in Fridayâ€™s crane collapse at the Grand Mosque, Mecca.
Saraki in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Sanni Onogu, on Saturday in Abuja also prayed for quick recovery of those injured.
He noted that the tragedy, coming two weeks to a period where hundreds of thousands of Islamic faithful would gather at the holy mosque for this yearâ€™s pilgrimage was disheartening.
He called on the Saudi authorities and relevant stakeholders to do all that was necessary to ensure safety of citizens and pilgrims in the holy city before, during and after the hajj exercise.
Saraki also condemned the bomb explosion that reportedly killed 14 Internally Displaced Persons and injured 13 others at the Malkohi camp in Yola, Adamawa.
Sarakiâ€™s said, â€œThe inhuman act could only have been perpetrated by sadists and evil people now facing imminent defeat.
â€œThe IDPs in the North-East need our support now more than ever.
â€œThe insurgents have resorted to cowardly methods because they are being routed by our military.
â€œWe must continue to pray for the success of the ongoing military efforts against the insurgents.
â€œWe urge the Nigerian military to remain resolute and focused because we are definitely witnessing the last days of Boko Haram in our country.â€
He called on security agencies and ordinary Nigerians to be more vigilant, to prevent Boko Haram renegades from taking cover in their midst to carry out such dastardly acts in future.
â€œWe must not be deceived by these pockets of attacks on innocent citizens because this attack represents the last desperate acts of a dying evil organisation now facing the full heat of our gallant troops.
â€œOur troops have demonstrated in no unmistakable terms that they are ready to keep a date with the December ultimatum given to the service chiefs to crush the insurgents,â€ he said.
