Tsunami, earthquake in Indonesia horrifying –Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has described as unsettling and horrifying, the latest Tsunami and earthquake that hit Indonesia ‘s Central Sulawesi Island.

He said it was a natural disaster that was beyond the power of humans to control.

The president made the remark on Saturday when commiserating with the people of Indonesia.

In a message to the people of the country, Buhari said the natural disaster which claimed nearly 400 lives was devastating beyond description.

He said notwithstanding the distance, the people of Nigeria “remain connected to them by our bond of common humanity, and such bond creates automatic empathy and sympathy for the pains and tribulations of others.”

He said his administration and the entire people of Nigeria were with Indonesia at their “difficult and tough moment when you struggle hard to minimise the impact of this tragedy and in your efforts to provide temporary relief and comfort to the affected victims.”

He prayed for God’s protection against further occurrence and comfort for victims.
