President Muhammadu Buhari has condoled with President John Magufuli and the people of Tanzania on the tragic MVNyerere ferry disaster in the south of Lake Victoria, which has so far claimed over a hundred lives.


President Buhari assured his African brother and the good people of Tanzania of the sympathy of all Nigerians as they mourn the death of their loved ones on MVNyerere.


According to him, the prayers and thoughts of all Nigerians are with the families and friends of the bereaved even as rescue efforts by emergency services continue.


The President prays that God Almighty will comfort all those who lost relatives and friends in the accident and grant eternal rest to the departed souls.
