“Every Nigerian citizen matters to the Federal Government no matter his status or where he resides. Mr President asked me to come and first commiserate with Governor Willie Obiano and Anambra people.

“He was very concerned that he felt it was not enough to issue condolence message and so asked me to come and commiserate with the people.

“I have been taken round to see the heroic action of the hospital staff and those involved in emergency. Unfortunately, many lost their lives but some have seen today and are responding to treatment,’’ he said.

Addressing the crowd that gathered around the scene of the accident, Osinbajo said that he had discussed with Obiano on possible ways the Federal Government and Anambra government could cooperate to prevent further accidents. The vice-president commended the governor for undertaking to settle the hospital bills of the victims.
