According to reports, severe floods in Nigeria since September caused the deaths of over 600 people and displaced 1.3 million from their homes, communities and villages.
According to a Government Minister, it is the most devastating episode of seasonal floods Nigeria has seen in a decade.
Reacting to the sad incidents in Nigeria, the King of England, Charles III, has released a statement about the floods in Nigeria.
The monarch sent a condolence message to President Buhari to express profound sorrow over flood havoc across Nigeria.
The King also said he remembered with the greatest affection his visits to Nigeria and the kindness of the people he and his team met.
In his words:
Your Excellency, Dear Mr. President,
“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.
“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,” he said.
