King Charles III of England has written to the president, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), concerning the “devastating floods” bedeviling most states of the federation.
In the open letter signed by the monarch on Friday, King Charles III stated that he was “deeply saddened” about the lives lost due to the flood.
King Charles III then sympathised with the victims of the flood, stating that the UK “stands in solidarity” with the country over the flood.
The letter, which was cited by our correspondent, read, “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.”
