The Sokoto governor said he was in Kebbi to condole with the government and people of the state, especially the people of Yauri Emirate over the unfortunate boat accident which led to the sad loss of many lives.

“We are here to commiserate with you on the loss of lives of our brothers and sisters that were involved in the boat mishap that happened a few days ago in Yauri Emirate.

” It is indeed a very unfortunate and sad incident and we pray that God shall forgive these people who have lost their lives and may He admit them into Aljannat Firdaus.

“Please accept the condolences and commiseration of the government and people of Sokoto State.

In his response, Bagudu appreciated Tambuwal, whom he described as a brother, for the condolence visit.

Bagudu also thanked the Sokoto State Government for the kind gesture to the victims of the incident.

“You have announced the donation of N40 million to the victims, we can’t thank you enough, Your Excellency.
