Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has extended a message of condolence to the government and people of Sierra Leone over the disaster caused by a landslide in the Regent region of the country.

Mrs Buhari’s condolence message was delivered to the First Lady of Sierra Leone, Mrs. Sia Nyama Koroma at the High Commission of the Republic of Sierra Leone in Nigeria through the Senior Special Assistant to the President, Dr. Hajo Sani.

“I commiserate with you and the people of Sierra Leone on the unfortunate mudslide and heavy flooding which claimed more than 300 lives,” Mrs Buhari said in the condolence letter.

She prayed that almighty God would give families of the deceased the fortitude to bear the loss.

Receiving the letter, the High Commissioner, Mrs. Afsatu Olayinka Kabba, expressed gratitude of the Sierra Leonean people for the condolence.

She praised continued brotherly role played by Nigeria in the West African region.

She also extolled the sisterly relationship between Mrs. Aisha Buhari and Mrs. Sia Koroma.

Mrs. Kabba said her country has seen a lot of turmoil from the rebel war to the Ebola epidemic during which time Nigeria always stood by Sierra Leone, and prayed that this would continue.
