The Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has expressed condolences on behalf of the members of the party to the Muslim community worldwide over the tragic stampede that claimed the lives of hundreds of pilgrims performing Hajj in Mecca.
The party, in a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh on Friday, said it has been “grief-stricken since receiving the news of the tragic incident.
“The PDP mourns. Our thoughts and prayers go to the Muslim Community worldwide and particularly, the families of Nigerian worshippers who were affected in the sad occurrence. Indeed, we share in their pains and pray that the Almighty God, in His mercies, comfort and give them the fortitude to bear the loss.”
The party urged all Nigerians to remain in prayers for the repose of the souls of the departed and for speedy recovery for those wounded in the stampede.
