PDP Govs Forum Condoles Gov. Udom Emmanuel and Akwa Ibomites Over Uyo Church Tragedy

The PDP Governors Forum has condoled with the government and people of Akwa Ibom State over Saturday’s tragic collapse of Reigners Bible Church building in Uyo where several lives were lost, many injured and many more still on danger list in medical facilities scattered over the state.

 

In a statement signed on behalf of the forum by the Secretary, Mr. Patrick. Okon, the forum expressed its heartfelt condolences to Governor Emmanuel and the good people of Akwa Ibom State.
The statement in part read ‘We are saddened to hear of the unfortunate incidence that claimed several precious lives with you escaping by the whiskers from the scene of the tragedy’.
It continued ‘This is too much for you to bear alone; and we stand by you. Our hearts are with the government and people of Akwa Ibom State at this tragic time and we join others in praying that the Almighty God will give the devastated and forever-changed-by-grief families and friends of the bereaved the fortitude to bear the irreparable losses, even as we bring them consolation and comfort’.

 

The forum also prayed for those who have survived the tragedy, and asked for God’s mercy to heal them of the memories of trauma and devastation as well as grant them the courage and strength to face the days ahead.
