In the wake of a devastating train accident in Lagos that claimed the lives of six people and injured several others, Nigeria's President-elect Bola Tinubu has issued a statement expressing his condolences to the families of the victims and offering his support to those affected by the tragedy.
In a statement released by his media aide, Tunde Rahman, Tinubu expressed his deep sadness at the loss of life and the injuries suffered by those caught up in the accident, which occurred in the Ikeja area of Lagos on Thursday.
"My thoughts are with the victims and their families at this difficult time," Tinubu said. "I pray for their swift recovery and offer my full support to the Lagos State Government as they work to provide the best possible care to those affected by this tragedy."
The President-elect went on to express his admiration for the emergency response efforts underway in the wake of the accident, noting that he would continue to closely follow the situation and offer his assistance where necessary.
The Lagos train accident is just the latest in a series of transportation disasters to strike Nigeria in recent years, highlighting the urgent need for improved infrastructure and safety measures across the country's transport network. As Tinubu and other leaders work to address these critical issues, the victims of Thursday's tragedy remain in our thoughts and prayers.
