On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari (retd.) expressed condolences to the government and people of Indonesia in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake that killed more than 160 people, damaged 2,200 houses, and displaced 13,000 more in the country’s West Java province.
Buhari’s message of condolence is contained in a statement signed late Tuesday by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, and titled ‘President Buhari consoles Indonesia following a deadly earthquake.’
“On behalf of the people of Nigeria,” Buhari said in his message, “I convey our deep condolences to the government and people of Indonesia on the tragic episode of this earthquake, the deadliest this year, and give the strong assurance that we stand with you in this very difficult period.”
“We join you in praying for the dead and for the quick recovery of the injured,” he added.
