British monarch, King Charles III has written to President Muhammadu Buhari over the recent flooding in Nigeria, sympathising with the country over the incident that has killed not less than 600 persons.
The disaster has also forced more than 1.3 million from their homes, according to a statement by Nigeria’s ministry of humanitarian affairs
“Your Excellency, Dear Mr President,” King Charles began in the message. “I wanted you to know how deeply saddened both my wife and I are to hear of the many people who have lost their loved ones and whose lives have been so dreadfully affected as a consequence of the devastating floods across Nigeria.
“We remember with the greatest affection our visits to Nigeria and the kindness of the people we met.”
While reiterating the UK’s support to Nigeria, he said “however inadequate this may be under such tragic circumstances, our most heartfelt sympathy is with all those who have suffered so much, and our thoughts are with those working to support the recovery efforts.”
“I know that the United Kingdom stands in solidarity with Nigeria as you recover from these truly terrible events.”
