President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed sadness over by the fatal accident in Mgbowu, Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State, in which scores of people died, most of them school pupils.
Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement said Buhari condoled with families and kith and kin of the dead, praying that God will grant them succour, and spare the country of such tragedy in future.
He also commiserated with the Catholic Church of Awgu, which runs Presentation Nursery and Primary School that the pupils attended, and the Enugu State government.
President Buhari enjoined vehicle owners to ensure roadworthiness, as initial reports attributed the accident to brake-failure by the truck involved.
