Lagos Tanker Fire: Togolese President Condoles With Nigeria
President Faure Gnassingbe Eyadema of Togo on Friday in Katsina, condoled with President Muhammadu Buhari on the fire disaster caused by a fallen petrol tanker in Lagos on Thursday.
Eyadema, who is currently the Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority, said he was in Katsina to brief President Buhari on the latest situations in the sub-regional organization.
He, however, used the opportunity to commiserate with Nigeria over the Thursday’s Lagos tanker fire.
“I came here in my capacity as Chairman of ECOWAS Authority to brief him on the different situations in our region – the situation in Guinea Bissau; the situation in Mali which is going to have presidential election at the end of July including my own situation in Togo,’’ he said.
“I used the opportunity to express my condolences to the President over what happened last night in Lagos state,’’ he said.
